Thank you for joining us at the 2017 National Summit on Advanced Illness Care

November 27 - 29, 2017

Washington, DC

C-TAC works to improve advance illness care in a fragmented system of care that is often uncoordinated and confusing.

Get the facts about advanced illness care

Many assume that when faced with advanced illness they will be able to…

Be at home, with family and friends

See the Reality

In reality, medical care often ends up with patients being recycled through the hospital system.

Manage their pain

See the Reality

Instead they receive unwanted, ineffective treatments that do little to relieve pain.

Address their spiritual wants and needs

See the Reality

Rather than having their wishes addressed, they die in the hospital – isolated and in pain.

Avoid financially burdening their loved ones

See the Reality

Medical care is often much more than expected and becomes a burden to families left behind.

Key Initiatives

C-TAC advances our mission through these key initiatives.
