Advocating for Change

PACE believes that patients should be at the heart of all decisions affecting their treatment and care.

Successful advocacy is a collaboration, and PACE USA is proud to partner with patient advocacy initiatives, professional groups, research organizations, and policymakers nationwide. Our shared vision is to create an environment that has the patient at the center of all decisions about cancer care and that recognizes that each step forward can have important benefits for patients today and for the future of cancer treatment.

Working together, we identify issues central to cancer care and innovation and promote health care decisions that improve access to treatments while helping to ensure the patient voice is heard and respected.

With our partners, we strive to:

  • Empower patients to engage in the health care system helping to ensure that their individual voice and needs are heard;
  • Advocate for policies that encourage patient access to high-quality cancer care across the entire continuum of care;
  • Advocate for a positive regulatory environment that recognizes that every incremental advance in the treatment of cancer is important to the patients it helps;
  • Promote timely patient access to innovative cancer medicines and treatments.
