With over 450,000 supporters nationwide, Compassion & Choices firmly believes in strength through numbers. We fully embrace this philosophy by working with other organizations that also want to see more options and improved care at the end of life. We actively participate in coalitions and are a member of organizations working to advance this goal, maximize scarce resources and learn from others.

Campaign to End Unwanted Medical Treatment

The mission of the Campaign to End Unwanted Medical Treatment is to ensure people receive the medical treatment that they want consistent with their goals, preferences and values – nothing less and nothing more. In order to fulfill this mission, we must overcome and remove barriers in current laws that prevent people from receiving treatment that is inconsistent with their wishes.
