National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF)
The National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF) is dedicated to amplifying the voices of patients and advocating for better access to affordable, equitable, quality care. They provide educational resources to help patients advocate for themselves, and work to educate the public and policymakers about the needs of patients and caregivers.
CAPC collaborates with NPAF as part of the Patient Quality of Life Coalition, which educates federal policymakers about the needs of patients living with serious illness. NPAF also consults with CAPC on technical assistance needs for hospitals and health systems. Finally, NPAF’s affiliate, the Patient Insight Institute, informs CAPC’s content and course development to ensure that resources reflect patient and families’ highest priorities.
