Supportive Care Coalition

Formed in 1994 as Supportive Care of the Dying by six visionary Catholic health care organizations, Supportive Care Coalition: Pursuing Excellence in Palliative Care, has grown to 23 member organizations with health care facilities nationwide. In 2006, the name was changed to better reflect Coalition palliative care activities that address the continuum of living with life-limiting illness from time of diagnosis to end of life.

The coalition is dedicated to promoting cultural change that embraces supportive care, compassionate relief of suffering and pain, and symptom management for helping people live with life-threatening illness. “We recognize a better death is possible.” Excellent research reports and outcomes in cultural diversity and palliative care.
