Conference Description :
Patients with serious illness benefit by receiving Palliative Care. Despite the rapid growth of the field, healthcare institutions and systems struggle with how to meet this need of providing high-quality care for their seriously ill patients. Palliative Care Education and Practice (PCEP) is a comprehensive course delivered by expert palliative care clinicians and educators who create a warm, welcoming environment conducive to deep learning and growth. PCEP provides physicians, nurses, and social workers a structure in which to efficiently acquire the competencies necessary to influence this changing healthcare environment.

You may apply for either the adult track or the pediatric track. Adult and pediatric track participants attend joint sessions except where noted in the schedule. The pediatric track will highlight the unique aspects of pediatric palliative care.

Conference Objectives are :
• Demonstrate increased knowledge in the key competencies of palliative care, including advanced pain and symptom management
• Apply new communication skills to the complex care of seriously ill patients
• Teach fundamental palliative care principles to learners from a variety of healthcare settings
• Develop palliative care curricula using principles of adult learning styles, new teaching methodologies, and goal-directed feedback
• Integrate palliative care clinical programs into a wide variety of healthcare settings by assessing institutional structure and culture, evaluating readiness to change, and developing palliative care programs with strategies for continuity.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
