Palliative Care Advocacy in Minnesota

In an effort to be FOR real care and not just against assisted suicide this week saw the introduction of Senate file 112 — Chief Author Housley, a bill that would create an advisory committee on palliative care within the MN Department of Health.

A statement of support and coalition partners advancing this bill can be found here.  The effort is being spearheaded by the American Cancer Society.  Similar legislation has passed in other state.  More information on the bill can be found here.
