National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care (NCHPC)

Comprised of the national organizations specializing in palliative care and hospice, the goals of the National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition (NCHPC) are to:

  1. Present a united voice to the public on behalf of providers who care for patients and families living with chronic, debilitating, and life-limiting illnesses
  2. Enhance communication and cooperation among member organizations in order to coordinate activities to improve care
  3. Advocate on behalf of patients and families
  4. Champion public policy and regulatory activities

CAPC is a founding member of the Coalition. As such, CAPC works alongside other members to respond to various health policy opportunities and challenges on behalf of the hospice and palliative care field, including the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care.
