Senators, please pass PCHETA!

The House of Representatives recently passed the Palliative Care & Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA) (S. 2080, Baldwin and Capito)!

The bill is now before the US Senate, and we need our Senators’ support to pass the bill and improve access to palliative and hospice care for brain tumor patients and their families.

Studies have shown that palliative care improves quality of life, enhances patient and family satisfaction with care, and controls costs for the rapidly expanding population of individuals with serious illness or multiple chronic conditions.

Contact your Senators now and ask them to support PCHETA to ensure that patients and providers understand the benefits of palliative care and that an adequate, appropriately trained workforce is available to provide pain and symptom management, intensive communication, and level of care coordination required by patients facing a serious and complex chronic illness, including brain tumors.
