As palliative care and hospice leaders and managers, we recognize that 2018 will continue to be a pivotal time for the future of hospice and palliative care, as well as healthcare in general. Health policy will continue to dominate the Congressional calendar in 2018 as legislators grapple with health reform, regulators with mandates to innovate and to integrate quality metrics, and providers strive to maximize available resources - all with the goal of providing the highest quality care possible. This will present both opportunities and challenges for serious and advanced illness and end-of-life care. It is critical that NHPCO and our members and partners be active participants in charting our own course, and we’ve made a change to the structure of MLC to facilitate this goal.
