Minnesota Palliative Care Advisory Council

In 2017 the Minnesota legislature created a Palliative Care Advisory Council in order to advise the legislature on matters concerning palliative care in Minnesota. Among other projects the council chooses to take on, they are tasked with assessing the availability of palliative care in the state of Minnesota, identifying and analyzing the barriers that exist for Minnesotans to access palliative care, and recommending and drafting legislation to address palliative care needs among Minnesotans.

The advisory council is made up of a variety of individuals who have professional or personal experience with palliative care. Many are practitioners and represent a wide variety of inpatient, outpatient, and community settings and delivery models. Additionally, several members of the council have experience as a caregiver or patient.

Palliative Care Advisory Council meetings are open to the public.
