Transforming Advanced Care: Why C-TAC Needs You

The Coalition’s work is collaborative by design and member-led.  Our Action Plan, developed and approved by Coalition members, is a public document.  All members agree to the Coalition’s Guiding Principles and are encouraged to identify areas of collaboration with one another in order to achieve the Coalition’s goals.

Nearly 200 individual participants from member organizations are engaged either in a Workgroup or Committee:

These participants are focused on four integrated directives:

  1. Identifying, designing and promoting best-practice delivery models that ensure high-quality, coordinated care across all settings.
  2. Developing and disseminating innovative, inter-professional education to clinicians aimed at improving quality, shared decision making, and improved medical care by cultivating respect, compassion and responsiveness in care delivery.
  3. Developing and advocating for federal and state legislative, regulatory, judicial andadministrative policies, as well as private policies, to improve care for those with advanced illness.
  4. Undertaking a nationwide campaign of public education and engagement to help patients and their families make more informed decisions and to support delivery system and policy change

Across these directives, there is particular focus on faith-based and cultural perspectives.

We welcome the participation of organizations and individuals committed to our mission is to transform advanced illness care by empowering consumers, changing the health delivery system, improving public and private policies and enhancing provider capacity.  Please contact us and make advanced care a national priority.
