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 has launched a five-year national effort—Project Tipping Point.

The cornerstone is a nationwide competition, The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge, which is designed to catalyze the spread of skills, ideas, and solutions that will improve health care delivery for all people living with serious illness. In its second round, the goal of the Challenge is to identify and spread innovation that will make positive, breakthrough change in the care of serious illness.

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.
