Metadata[+] Show full item record
There is an important update regarding legislative attempts to improve health care, including end of life care, for all Americans in the this week's Update of the Missouri Hospice & Palliative Care Association (MHPCA). In 2003 the U.S. Congress created the Citizens' Health Care Working Group. This group was charged with the task of facilitating a nationwide public debate about improving the health care system to enable universal access to quality and affordable health care coverage in this country, and for developing an action plan for Congress and the President to consider as they work to improve health care for all Americans. The 15-member group has issued its first set of recommendations in a report titled Health Care That Works for All Americans.
