Full Description: 

Sponsored by the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC).

In this audio conference you will learn why outpatient services are the new frontier in palliative care. Many patients with serious illness spend the vast majority of their time outside of hospitals. Outpatient palliative care services can improve quality patient care, potentially decrease patient mortality, and increase efficiency in health care systems and accountable care organizations. Presenter, Michael W. Rabow, MD, will review the major challenges and opportunities in developing and sustaining outpatient palliative care services and highlight the resources available to support such work.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Review key elements of an institutional needs assessment to identify gaps and resources.
  • List three models of outpatient programs and how each aligns with health system priorities.
  • Identify four challenges to sustainability inherent in outpatient palliative care service design.
