Led by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the PQLC seeks to advance the interests of patients and families facing serious illness by promoting public policy to improve and expand access to high-quality palliative care. The Patient Quality of Life Coalition urges legislative and regulatory change that would raise public awareness of palliative care, expand the workforce, strengthen the palliative care evidence base, and amplify the reach of palliative care programs nationwide.

CAPC is an active member of the coalition, preparing written commentary and participating in meetings with federal policymakers to educate them on palliative care’s value and opportunities to advance quality for all people living with serious illness.
