COVID-19 forced fast changes in U.S. health care. Telehealth is on the rise, we have reason to believe that the path toward value-based care is accelerating, and there is overwhelming evidence of disparities in health care and health outcomes. Palliative care professionals can play a critical role in building a better health care system—one that ensures ALL people living with a serious illness have access to the high-quality care they need.

On December 7-10, 2020, CAPC members gathered for inspiring keynotes, collaborative breakout sessions, and thought-provoking discussions on the future of palliative care. Watch the keynotes and special recognition poster presentations on-demand on our YouTube channel. View the full 2020 poster session on the CAPC website.
