Creating Innovations to Address the Palliative Care Workforce Shortage


  • Wednesday, July 31

    12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET

The field of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) faces a critical workforce shortage.

As a follow-up to her recent blog post, Dr. Laura Dingfield joins CAPC for a webinar, where she will share her experience in creating an innovative, competency-based, time-variable training program, in partnership with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).

Dr. Dingfield will address challenges and barriers to innovation, including an understanding of what resources (beyond funding) are needed to create a competency-based part-time fellowship program, as well as obstacles which may be encountered when creating these training programs. In addition, she will differentiate between the competency-based time-variable fellowship innovation at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), and a traditional fellowship, along with sharing lessons learned, and describing how other programs can learn from and collaborate with Penn.
