Serious Illness Care

The National Quality Forum (NQF) has developed several resources focused on serious illness. NQF developed and launched Issue Brief: Opportunities for Advancing Quality Measurement in Community-Based Serious Illness Care in May 2020. This Issue Brief outlines recommendations, preferred tools and approaches, current measures available for use, in development, or proposed to fill measurement gaps, including several high-priority measure concepts addressing functional assessment and caregiver strain and resilience.

NQF also developed and launched Strategies for Change - A Collaborative Journey to Transform Advanced Illness Care in November 2016 and the National Quality Partners™ Case Study: Integrating Personal Preferences in Advanced Illness Care in March 2017.
