Coalition Activities

Coalition Activities

The Coalition works together to respond to various health policy opportunities and challenges on behalf of its members and the hospice and palliative care field. Each month the Coalition meets to discuss various issues of interest and concern and determines what course of action, if any, is needed. The Coalition has submitted comments to various regulatory, legislative and other external entities on behalf of the Members of the Coalition. Our various letters and comments have helped influence policy changes that have improved the care of those with serious illness and at the end of life. Additionally, the Coalition routinely and successfully submits nominations of experts to serve on federal and national advisory bodies.  Examples of our collaborative work are below.

National Academy of Sciences, Report on Dying in America
