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.
All patients, families and caregivers will have equitable access to quality hospice and palliative care.
We believe that patients, families, and caregivers, (regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or ability) are always the intended beneficiaries of our work.
We believe as a Coalition our best role is to convene, advocate and streamline access and information regarding innovative and inclusive best practices and quality standards.
We believe that patient voices are essential to the quality of care and seek partnerships to have them guide our work.
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.
