The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) was established to increase access to quality palliative care services. CAPC leads the nation in providing health care professionals and organizations with the training, tools, and technical assistance necessary to meet this need. An important part of this mission is ensuring that all clinicians working with seriously ill patients have key skills, many of which are not yet taught in standard clinical education.

CAPC Designation reflects a clinician’s proven commitment to continued progress in improving the care of patients living with a serious illness, and their families. Health care professionals who show this commitment deserve public recognition.
