7th Annual Summit
APRIL 14-15, 2015
Palliative care is a movement and you’re a part of it.
Join with the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California and leaders in the palliative care community as we answer a call to action and explore opportunities that will shape the future of health care in California and across the nation.
The Coalition for Compassionate Care of California 7th Annual Summit is designed for physicians, nurses, social workers, nursing home administrators, chaplains, and other health providers interested in clinical research, quality, and policy as it applies to palliative care.
Participants will be able to:
- Outline steps to communicate effectively with seriously ill patients and their families, as well as the general public, regarding palliative care and goals of treatment toward the end of life.
- Discuss current policies under development in California to expand access to palliative care.
- Explain how a community-based palliative care model can span both inpatient and outpatient settings and reduce healthcare resource utilization.
- Identify opportunities to increase access to palliative care for under-served populations.
