Our Mission

We improve the care of people with serious or life-limiting illnesses by convening the field, advocating for equitable policies and improved health outcomes, establishing best practices, and sharing resources.

Our Vision

All patients, families and caregivers will have equitable access to quality hospice and palliative care.


Strategic Plan

The Coalition Strategic Plan provides a framework to support the mission and vision with specific strategies to achieve the goals:

  • Advance health equity for patients with serious illness and their caregivers
  • Advocate for legislative and regulatory policy changes to advance the field of hospice and palliative care practice
  • Disseminate best practices, research, and data to advance the field
  • Create a sustainable foundation for the Coalition

Strategic Framework

Patients need equitable access to quality hospice and palliative care regardless of location, race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or ability.

Patients deserve a primary and specialty workforce and universal quality standards to meet their hospice and palliative care needs.

All people with serious and/or life-limiting conditions should have access to the full scope of palliative care regardless of where they are

The Coalition will be the lead convener for the organizations within the hospice and palliative care field
