Briefing: Release of the CAPC Clinical Training Recommendations
Health professionals cannot be expected to provide what they have never been trained to do – and the result is unnecessary suffering, reduced quality of life, and higher costs.
Join Diane E. Meier, MD, CAPC director, and Brynn Bowman, CAPC Chief Strategy Officer, as they release the new CAPC Clinical Training Recommendations – new education standards that will provide a roadmap for clinicians and health care organizations to systematically enhance their ability to meet the needs of patients with serious illness, and their families. The new standards were developed by CAPC faculty and are adapted from the 4th edition of the National Consensus Project’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care. They are geared to clinicians and clinical leaders from all specialties and disciplines.
