Clinicians need to reexamine how they care for safety-net populations, especially when such vulnerable patients are living with life-limiting conditions. The authors offer five strategies to develop robust palliative care programs aimed at improving care for these populations: utilizing lay health workers, addressing gaps in care and setting goals of care, creating specialized interventions, shaping the interdisciplinary team for resilience support, and addressing opioids.
