Racial and Ethnic Disparities in End-of-Life Care for Patients With Oesophageal Cancer

From 2003 to 2019, there was a decrease of deaths in hospitals, nursing homes, and outpatient medical facilities/emergency departments and an increase of deaths at home and in hospice. Relative to White decedents, Black and Asian decedents were less likely to die at home. These findings suggest the importance of improving access to advance care planning and delivering tailored, person-centered interventions.
