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:
Please forward this needs-assessment survey to your peers, students, educators, and colleagues.
