The Coalition for Supportive Care is an evolution of the earlier Kidney End-of-Life Coalition. Their mission is to “Promote effective interchange among patients, families, healthcare professionals, and payers to ensure the provision of patient-centered supportive care for patients with kidney disease. Supportive care is the continuum of palliative care and includes providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness. The goal of the Coalition is to improve the quality of life for both patients and families from the time of diagnosis through to end-of-life care.” Find out more about the Coalition for Supportive Care at https://kidneysupportivecare.org/Home.aspx.
