Person-Centered Care

NPAF is dedicated to advancing person-centered care for everyone facing a serious illness. We advocate for accessible, high quality, affordable health care.

Who We Are

The National Patient Advocate Foundation, the advocacy affiliate of the Patient Advocate Foundation, represents the patient voice by articulating the powerful stories of individuals and the collective needs of the community. Our staff and volunteers work at the local, regional and national level to promote access to affordable, quality health care for people with chronic, debilitating or life-threatening illnesses. 

Roadmap to Consumer Clarity

The Roadmap to Consumer Clarity in Health Care Decision Making is a special NPAF project designed to propose actionable models for person-centered care for patients and their health care providers.
