Mt. Sinai study: Most Americans live nearby to hospice care
A majority of Americans live within about 15 minutes from hospice care. And, the vast majority of the rest of America lives about an hour from a hospice provider. Notably, the results from a team of researchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine have recently published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine.
According to Melissa S.A. Carlson, Ph.D., assistant professor of geriatrics and palliative care medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, data suggests that the proximity to hospice care by populations does not necessarily translate into additional use of hospice care by ordinary Americans.
