Public Policy

The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) plays a unique and vital role in improving care for seriously ill Californians. We understand that changing the model for end-of-life care involves not only families and healthcare providers, but also public policymakers.

Policy and Legislation

To accomplish our mission—to promote high-quality, compassionate care for all seriously ill Californians—CCCC engages in a variety of activities such as tracking legislation and educating policy makers for changes that increase access to palliative medicine and quality, compassionate care.

Activities Include:

  • Serving as a resource for policymakers who want accurate, objective information about good end-of-life care, and
  • Providing our members with the latest information on state legislation and policies related to palliative medicine and end-of-life care.
