Exploring New Horizons for Palliative Care
This is a unique time in the history of palliative care. Prominent healthcare leaders and policy makers are calling for increased access to palliative care as part of healthcare reform. The media and the public are increasingly asking for information about death, dying, and serious illness. Never before has there been so much interest in palliative care.
So, how do we – as the palliative care community in California – deliver on the promise of palliative care? How do we make palliative care available throughout the continuum of care? How do we make advance care planning a normal part of everyday conversation? How do we leverage this opportunity to transform our healthcare system and our society at large?
Join the Coalition for Compassionate Care on April 10th & 11th in Newport Beach to find out about cutting-edge practices in palliative care, as well as to shape the future of palliative care!
