Coalition to Transform Advanced Care

Great news coming out this week – NHPCO is pleased to be part of a movement called C-TAC that aims to change the way our country handles advanced illness care by empowering consumers, changing the healthcare delivery system, improving public and private policies, and enhancing provider capacity.

Since 2004, NHPCO’s Caring Connections initiative,, has provided important information about advance care planning and issues relating to caregiving for those near life’s end and supports advancement of all efforts that would help people become better informed regarding care options and their wishes for care. Healthcare policy, professional education and consumer awareness are all critically important, yet, it ultimately comes down to the highest quality care at the bedside and NHPCO welcomes C-TAC on its mission to advance this care.
