U.S. lawmakers and health care providers may be ready to renew a national discussion about palliative and hospice care and advance care planning. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., said there has been an increase in support for advance care planning, and his Personalize Your Care Act would help people get the end-of-life care they want. Another House bill would increase palliative care faculty, while legislation to be introduced in both the Senate and House would support palliative care education and research.
