Despite the rapid growth of palliative care in the U.S., most people who need it don’t get. To help close this gap, CAPC has launched a five-year national effort—Project Tipping Point and the Tipping Point Challenge.

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.

CAPC launched the first Tipping Point Challenge (from January 10 - December 31, 2019). Over 1500 organizations met the Challenge with 24 organization winners and another 70 achieving the Honor Roll. A remarkable 15,000+ clinicians enhanced their training by completing 149,000 courses!

The competition challenged participants to be more ambitious in their thinking and facilitated the spread of skills across specialties and disciplines. Organizations and leadership tackled the issue of spreading skill on an enterprise-level, enabling them to continue scaling improvement in the care they deliver to this patient population.

Completion of CAPC courses helped to demonstrate competency in the field and obtain grants. The Tipping Point Challenge spurred further course completion throughout the center.
