What Happens at the Seminar

Through the CAPC National Seminar you’ll gain the insight and tools necessary to start and sustain a palliative care program across settings and spread clinical skills to all frontline clinicians. The highly practical two and a-half day seminar is open to all - both members and non-members - and provides comprehensive training in all aspects of planning, implementing, delivering and growing palliative care services.

Every seminar focuses on the most important, cutting-edge topics. The highly interactive format includes:

Keynote and Plenary Sessions from national leaders on the most critical topics in palliative care delivery, payment and quality measurement

Concurrent and Intensive Sessions providing solutions for mission-critical issues such as coordinating services across settings, embedding services in subspecialty clinics, engaging colleagues in palliative care training and implementation of quality advance care planning

New Topics including leadership development, the role of telehealth, getting the most out of your electronic medical records (EMR), addressing health equity, developing community partnerships and coalition building in pediatric palliative care

Office Hours to pose questions to the faculty members of your choice. You’ll also be able to solve problems and share tips and strategies with your peers.
