Palliative Care Workforce Survey

We have been invited to participate in a collaborative research study with several other hospice and palliative care/medicine organizations directly related to workforce burnout within the hospice and palliative medicine specialty. 

Please take just a few minutes of your time to make sure PAs are well represented in this study by clicking on the link below. You do not need to be a full time palliative care/medicine provider to do this survey.  The closing date is November 21, 2018, so please take a moment to complete this important survey as soon as possible.   

Your time and involvement is greatly appreciated!

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!

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