The Blog to Transform Advanced Care
Advancing Care through Innovation, Observation and Collaboration.
Today, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care (C-TAC) co-hosted an event on Capitol Hill highlighting the need for policy change to improve advanced illness and end-of-life care. The event was co-hosted by AARP, American Heart Association, Alzheimer’s Association, Capital Caring, LeadingAge, the National Coalition on Health Care, the National Partnership for Hospice Innovation, and The Pew Charitable Trusts.
We were honored to be joined by some of our champions on Capitol Hill including Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Representative Phil Roe, MD, (R-TN) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR). Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) was represented by Legislative Director Elizabeth Falcone, who discussed leadership and commitment in this area.
“This issue is near and dear to all our hearts, and drives our daily work making an effort to improve the lives of all Americans living with advanced illness.” – Tom Koutsoumpas, Co-Chair, C-TAC Board of Directors
“This work is extremely close to me … people need that caring, helping hand in these moments.” – Senator Shelley Moore Capito
