Legislation PAHPM is Tracking
PCHETA has been reintroduced now both in the US House of Representatives and Senate with strong bipartisan support again this year!
We encourage everyone to contact their members of Congress to support moving this legislation again through both houses and finally passing.
PCHETA's goal is to amend the Public Health Service Act to increase the number of permanent faculty in palliative care at accredited allopathic and osteopathic medical schools, nursing schools, social work schools, and other programs, including physician assistant education programs, to promote education and research in palliative care and hospice, and to support the development of faculty careers in academic palliative medicine.
