California State University Shiley Institute for Palliative Care Announces First Fully Online Self-Paced Business Case for Palliative Care Course
New online course, developed by nationally recognized experts in palliative care helps make the business case for existing or proposed palliative care programs.
San Marcos, Calif. – August 4, 2014 www.csupalliativecare.org. The Business Case for Palliative Care, starting August 18th, is designed to orient clinical and administrative leaders to the critical concepts behind the business case for palliative care. The self-paced course introduces the analyses needed to assess the impact of existing programs while identifying growth opportunities for hospitals, clinics, and home-based palliative care providers.
The CSU Shiley Institute for Palliative Care’s Executive Director, Helen McNeal, said, “A serious business evaluation of the benefits and challenges of a palliative care program will ultimately benefit the organization and those they serve. It is important that clinicians and administrators understand the financial analysis behind an effective palliative care program and how their program can demonstrate its value. This course is a great place to start.”
