Goal: 25,000 Progress: 4,476
Sponsored by: Alzheimer's Association

Please sign our petition to join us in urging Congress to pass the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA).

PCHETA would launch a national campaign to increase palliative care and hospice training for health care professionals, improving the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer's, controlling the costs of the disease, and enhancing patient and family satisfaction.

It's critical that members of Congress support this important piece of legislation. You can make your voice heard by taking a moment to sign our petition today.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Please cosponsor the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (S. 2748/H.R. 3119), which would increase palliative care and hospice training for health care professionals, launch a national campaign to inform patients and families about the benefits of palliative care, and enhance research on improving the delivery of palliative care.

Nearly half of all people with Alzheimer's and other dementias are in hospice care at the time of their death. Less than half of surveyed nursing homes have some sort of palliative care program. For people with advanced dementia, such care which focuses on managing and easing symptoms, reducing pain and stress, and increasing comfort improves quality of life, controls costs, and enhances patient and family satisfaction.

But, as the demand for such care grows with the aging population, more must be done to ensure an adequately trained workforce. I urge you to cosponsor the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (S. 2748/H.R. 3119).

Sincerely,

Petition Signatures
