An Inside Look at CAPC Membership with Diane E. Meier

In this exclusive video, CAPC Director Diane E. Meier MD walks you through the many resources, tools and technical training courses available for CAPC members.  This video interactively explores the entire site including online curriculum that leads to CAPC Designation in Pain Management and Communication Skills.

“Improving access to palliative care for all seriously ill people requires that every clinician have basic skills in pain and symptom management and in communication about what is most important to patients and their families. And patients must be able to find the same high quality palliative care expertise wherever they happen to be, whether at home, in their doctor’s office, in a nursing home, a cancer center or a dialysis unit. Need should determine access − whatever the setting, stage of disease or diagnosis,” says Dr. Meier.

CAPC membership is available to hospitals, health systems, hospices, payers and other healthcare organizations. For more on CAPC Membership, click here

    As we all know there’s major shortage of Palliative care providers,why a oncologist like me who practiced 25 years of hematology and oncology as well as palliative care every day of my life needs another year of fellowship? Why can they arrange for some necessary training and let us practice palliative care who are very much interested in doing just that?
