DVACO Recognizes World Hospice and Palliative Care Day
Saturday, October 8th was World Hospice and Palliative Care Day- World Hospice and Palliative Care Day 2022 (thewhpca.org). According to The Worldwide Hospice and Palliative Care Alliance, it is estimated that each year 57 million people are in need of palliative care services worldwide with 25 million people at the end-of-life. The underutilization of these services results in 18 million people dying in unnecessary pain and distress each year. The Delaware Valley Accountable Care Organization’s (DVACO) mission is to accelerate high quality value-based care in the region.
