The Tipping Point Challenge

Take the Tipping Point Challenge. Lead the charge for change!


The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) is celebrating its 20th anniversary year with a campaign aimed at reaching a tipping point in improving the quality of care delivered to the millions of Americans living with a serious illness. Despite the rapid growth of palliative care, most people who need it don’t get it. To help close this gap, CAPC has commenced a five-year national effort—Project Tipping Point—to expand patient access to the principles and practices of palliative care. The cornerstone of that effort is the Tipping Point Challenge.

Meet the Tipping Point Challenge

To kick off the campaign, CAPC has launched the first Tipping Point Challenge (running this year from January 10 - December 31, 2019). Due to generous funding and support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Challenge is now officially called The John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge.

The goals this year are two-fold 1) to increase the number of palliative care specialists maintaining the highest level of all specialist palliative care skills, and 2) to increase the number of other specialties and disciplines enhancing their skills in communication, pain management, and symptom management.
