Imprisoned Persons Advance-Care Team (ImPACT)

The Imprisoned Persons Palliative-Care Team (ImPACT) consists of New Orleans palliative-care providers, public-health workers, administrators, and prison-reform activists. We partnered with the prison medical directors to organize palliative-care outreach programs in Angola and Hunt prisons and will expand to other Louisiana prisons in the future. We are also working on policy initiatives within the Department of Corrections. All Tulane Hospice and Palliative Medicine fellows have the opportunity to participate in this project over the course of their fellowship.
