The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge
Despite the rapid growth of palliative care in the U.S., most people who need it don’t get it. To help close this gap, CAPC launched a five-year national effort—Project Tipping Point. The cornerstone is The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge, a national competition designed to catalyze the spread of skills, ideas, and solutions that will improve health care delivery for all people living with serious illness.
The goals of the third round of the Challenge were twofold: 1) to increase the number of clinicians from all specialties and disciplines enhancing their skills in communication and symptom management, and 2) to catalyze innovation that is making positive, breakthrough change in the care of serious illness.
In the third round, CAPC member organizations competed in the Clinical Training category and/or the Innovation category. All organizations were able to compete in the Innovation category. And, due to generous, additional funding from The Fan Fox and Leslie R. Samuels Foundation, New York City-based organizations competed in the Clinical Training category on the local level as well as the national.
CAPC proudly announced the Winners and Honor Roll for the Clinical Training category and the NYC Challenge on February 7, 2024. The winners and Finalists of the Innovation category were announced on February 28, 2024.
Due to generous funding and support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Challenge is officially called The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge.
The Tipping Point Challenge represents a way for the workforce caring for people living with serious illness to improve the care they deliver to patients and families in need - to help them manage their pain, their symptoms, to help with the needs of families, care coordination, communication - all of the critically important components of care for people who live with serious illness.
