Palliative Care Education for Organizations
To create a successful palliative care program, it is extremely important that everyone in the organization has a generalist level of knowledge about palliative care. The California State University Shiley Institute for Palliative Care works with leading experts in palliative care to create up-to-date curriculum that is accurate, interactive, and very engaging.
While there are many webinars and videos in the marketplace presented as palliative care education, the distinction lies in the quality of the content and the integration of the learning. All Institute courses are designed to raise awareness, build skills, and to support healthcare organizations in delivering the best care possible.

Integrating palliative care into your organization, whether a health system or a physician practice group, requires more than just adding a palliative care specialist or creating a palliative care team. Integrating palliative care is quite different from simply implementing a palliative care program.
The integration of palliative care is a cultural shift. This requires a plan, commitment, and champions to lead the way, but before this shift is possible, education is required. For a palliative care program to succeed it is important that everyone in the organization has a generalist level of knowledge of palliative care.
