AAHPM joined 70 health organizations in urging Senate leaders to pass legislation providing a path to citizenship for healthcare providers, educators, and researchers with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status. Read the letter.


AAHPM signed a joint statement from stakeholders concerned that the World Health Organization withdrew guidance documents addressing pain treatment in response to inaccurate charges that an opioid manufacturer influenced their development. The signatories urge balanced policy that preserves access to pain and palliative care and call on the WHO to reinstate its guidelines pending an effort to update them.


AAHPM with our partners (the National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care and RAND) submitted a Continuation of Funding application to CMS for its Palliative Care Measures Project. The project is developing and testing two patient-reported experience measures for use in outpatient palliative care.


Nominate your organization or program for the Circle of Life Award. The Award celebrates innovations in palliative and end-of-life care, with the goal of shining a light on programs and organizations which serve as models or inspiration for other providers. Applications are due August 16.
