NCPCC Regional Coalitions

NCPCC’s seven regional coalitions are made up of individuals with an interest in end-of-life matters. Regional coalitions are comprised of hospital and palliative care providers, faith community leaders, social workers, EMS providers, long-term care providers, hospital ethics committee members, and other volunteers. These coalitions are charged with developing integrated initiatives specifically tailored to meet the needs of regional and local populations—drawing upon resources developed by the subject matter task forces.
