CAPC Transitions to a Membership Organization

The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) is now a member-based organization, providing member institutions with unlimited access to a wide range of tools, training and technical assistance. The goal is to support palliative care delivery and quality by training all frontline clinicians and increasing access to palliative care services in and beyond the hospital.

“We have to respond to the rapid growth in demand for quality palliative care, and this requires that all frontline clinicians have training in palliative care – even if they don’t become specialists,” says CAPC Director Diane E. Meier, MD.

Membership is open to hospitals, health systems, hospices, payers and other community healthcare organizations. Among the many benefits, members can now take advantage of numerous Webinars and Virtual Office Hours. To learn more about membership, click here.
