Palliative care is becoming increasingly pertinent to be strengthened across health systems around the world, and the United States is not an exception. The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted provision and access to palliative care among patients with serious and complex illnesses, critically ill persons, and their families in the United States. Prior to the emergence of the pandemic, the United States faced a number of challenges ranging from racial discrimination, a stressed medical workforce, a lack of passable reimbursement for palliative care, and legal barriers, among others. Unfortunately, these issues have gotten worse amid the pandemic. This further revealed the need to invest more in innovative strategies that will ensure the provision of palliative care services during public health emergencies. In this article, we comment on the current state of palliative care in the United States.
