The Campaign to Transform Advanced Care
The population is aging rapidly – the number of older Americans will double by 2060. Though Americans are leading healthier and longer lives than ever before, the vast majority will face advanced illness at some point. Advanced illness involves one or more conditions impacting general health to the point that the effects of curative treatment become limited, and care increasingly becomes focused on quality of life.
Unfortunately, for all its strengths, our healthcare system is not yet equipped to provide such care when people are seriously ill.
People living with advanced illness still face challenges like fragmented, siloed systems that result in unnecessary suffering and not getting the care they want when and where they choose.
This is not a problem we can ignore.
That is why C-TAC is taking an important step forward and launching the Campaign to Transform Advanced Care, a national movement built on policy change, state and community organizing, and support for family caregivers, to accelerate the movement to transform advanced illness care. Learn more below:
