Senate Again Takes up Hospice, Palliative Staffing Bill

Posted Saturday, May 21, 2022

On Thursday, May 19th, US Senators Baldwin (D-WI) and Moore-Capito (R-WV) reintroduced the Palliative Care & Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA) (S.4260) Long a priority for the end-of-life and serious illness care community, PCHETA would authorize funding for major investments to build, support, and nurture the specialty hospice and palliative care workforce. It is expected that a House companion bill will be re-introduced soon as well.

“Access to high quality palliative and hospice care services is vital for patients and their families,” Capito said in a statement. “As a caregiver for parents living with Alzheimer’s disease, I saw firsthand just how valuable these services are. In order to preserve access to this care, our bill would strengthen training and education opportunities for individuals working in these fields.”
