This year’s theme was palliative care, with advocacy for the Palliative Care and Hospice Education Act (PCHETA), proposed legislation that would strengthen education on palliative care and provide support for programs that improve quality of life for patients facing serious illnesses. Advocates heard an update on current federal health care-related issues, participated in workshops on how to engage in discussions on difficult health-related topics and improve their storytelling. Participants spent Lobby Day visiting their legislators to discuss ways to support person-centered care.
