Home Health Agency Membership
Palliative care is critical to our work—but it isn’t covered in general nursing training. The CAPC curriculum has been essential in supporting our home-based staff to become skilled in palliative care competencies. Clinicians who have completed CAPC training report finding the case-based curriculum to be intuitive, interactive, and easy to connect with, and describe CAPC’s delivery strategies as engaging and relevant to patient care. Clinicians say the training supports ‘lived’ experience, which increases both their subject interest and retention. In the words of one CAPC-trained clinician, ‘When you know more, you do better.'
CAPC membership is designed to maximize the quality of care that home health agencies can provide for complex patients. CAPC teaches you to enhance skills; develop specialist-level palliative care service lines; gives you technical assistance, tools, and training on effective program design; and maximizes efficiency and success.
