This is the tenth course in the 11-part series of Building a Community-Based Palliative Care Program. You can take this single course or the entire series.
According to research conducted by The Ken Blanchard Companies “up to 70 percent of all change initiatives fail; a figure so high it means that most change initiatives are doomed to failure.” Palliative care services are unlike nearly every other service line in healthcare. Truly integrating community-based palliative care into an organization requires attention to the change that you are asking all your employees to make.
Whether you are a hospice interested in providing post-acute care palliative services, a hospital wanting to expand your inpatient program into the community, or an outpatient clinic seeking to add the specialty to your practice – community-based palliative care will require changes in knowledge, systems, and the culture of your organization.
This self-paced online course explores organizational change barriers, and processes needed to integrate palliative care throughout the organization. Best practices related to creating and sustaining change will be shared along with exercises and tools that programs can use to prepare for and support the launch of your community palliative care program.
