Project Tipping Point and the Tipping Point Challenge
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 services, most people who need palliative care 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. To kick off the campaign, CAPC has launched the first Tipping Point Challenge (running from January 10 - December 31, 2019). The goals are 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.
