The health care organizations included the National POLST Paradigm Office, one of The John A. Hartford Foundation's grantees in our end-of-life collaborative.

The palliative and end-of-life care letter was sent to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs on February 17, 2017. Our grantees the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care, the Center to Advance Palliative Care, and the American Geriatrics Society were among the 14 health care organizations who convened to recommend ways to improve palliative care and end-of-life care.
