This chapter sets out some of the developments in palliative and end-of-life care in the United States in the decade following the closure of the PDIA in 2003. It explores three areas. First, it assesses the continuing role of philanthropy in shaping the field that was defined by PDIA and other interventions. Second, it looks at key actions, studies, publications, and debates that infused the field in the post-PDIA decade—and finds many rich examples of activity, innovation, and growth. Third, it reviews the continuing challenges that face the field in the American context, and the various propositions about how they might be addressed.
