CardioSmart — Resources For Patients

Acknowledge National Hospice and Palliative Care Month This November

Join the ACC in recognizing National Hospice and Palliative Care Month this November to raise awareness about how important hospice and palliative care is to all ages. To help these patients know what to expect and better understand their health, ACC’s CardioSmart team created a palliative care resource with information on how to plan for the future. Also check out the College’s Advance Care Planning Toolkit with success metrics and strategies to understand, integrate and document advance care planning into routine practice. The toolkit was developed by members of ACC’s Geriatric Cardiology Section Palliative Care Work Group. Learn more about the toolkit at CVQuality.ACC.org.
