NHPCO and the Hospice Action Network work closely together to make an impact. NHPCO sets the public policy agenda through its Legislative Affairs Committee. The Hospice Action Network implements the agenda through direct lobbying, grassroots advocacy, and by empowering Hospice Advocates to share their hospice story with Congress. Our mission at HAN is to advocate, with one voice, for policies that ensure the best care for patients and families facing serious illness and the end of life.
We fight to ensure compassionate, high-quality care for all Americans facing a life-limiting illness by:
- Expanding an ongoing and influential presence on Capitol Hill,
- Mobilizing a growing network of Hospice Advocates throughout the nation,
- Empowering, through new and innovative techniques, an interactive community connecting the public with Hospice Advocacy, and
- Cultivating relationships with the media to highlight issues impacting end-of-life care.
