Examining End of Life Care: Creating Sensible Public Policies for Patients, Providers, and Payers.

Co-Sponsored by The Council on Health Care Economics

Medicare beneficiaries are living longer with chronic diseases, blurring the boundary between curative and end of life care. This meeting examined how chronic disease and dying in the U.S. has changed, and discussed policy options that address variations in care and patient preferences through both an economic and ethical decision-making framework.
