Policy Agenda


Review C-TAC’s policy agenda and how the Coalition is advocating for high-quality, person-centered advanced care at federal and local levels. Using the guidance, feedback, and combined expertise of dozens of experts, thought leaders, and C-TAC member organizations, we have further refined and developed the Agenda and are pleased to present the document in its final form. Moving forward in 2015, the Policy Agenda will help direct our advocacy efforts as a coalition and will be continuously revised and renewed as findings from priority projects such as the Advanced Care Project (ACP) and the Community Action Project (CAP) are released.
