The purpose of the guidelines is to improve access to quality palliative care by fostering consistent standards and continuity of care across settings. PAHPM is a supporting organization of the guidelines so please join us in this national effort so that all people living with serious illness and their families will receive the best care possible.

PAHPM Needs your support in advancing our profession. 

This survey will collect vital data for support and advocacy of educational initiatives and policy issues – such as the proposed bipartisan federal legislation in both houses of Congress. Now that Hospice legislation has passed, the need to address education and further policy to address workforce issues is more paramount. We are on our way to success! 

In particular, the Public Health bill PCHETA (Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act) in which PAs are explicitly named, is supported by both Houses of Congress. In addition to contacting your Senators and Representatives, add fuel to our initiative by filling out the survey.  Here is the link:


Over 600 responses so far: ADD YOUR VOICE TO OTHER PAS!
