Caring for Vulnerable Populations with Serious Illness


  • Tuesday, April 30

    1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. ET

About the event

When vulnerable populations experience serious illness, the quality of their care is much more likely to be shaped by forces beyond their control: access to care, social support, health literacy, and financial resources. Additionally, the clinical care they receive is often misaligned with their backgrounds, needs and goals. These gaps represent tremendous opportunities to improve the current system of serious illness and end of life care in vulnerable populations. This CAPC webinar will discuss these problems in the context of answering three interrelated questions:

  1. How do we serve our community’s most vulnerable members living with advanced illness?
  2. What partnerships do we need to provide this care?
  3. How do we develop resilience to moral distress and burnout?
