Transforming the Care of Serious Illness

Monday, November 2, 2015

Understanding patients' needs and goals is an essential component to delivering high value health care. Asking what matters most, listening to and understanding patient hopes, fears and concerns allows clinicians to deliver care that is effective, person-centered and in many cases cost efficient.

Join us on November 2nd at 2 pm Eastern time to hear from Diane E. Meier, MD, FACP, director, Center to Advance Palliative Care, about integrated palliative care strategies, how to improve quality and reduce costs for your most vulnerable patients and how to transform the care of those with serious illness.

The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) is a national organization dedicated to increasing the availability of quality palliative care services for people facing serious illness. As the leading resource for palliative care development and growth, CAPC provides health care professionals with training, tools and technical assistance necessary to start and sustain successfully palliative care programs in hospitals and other health care settings. CAPC is funded through membership and the generous support of foundations and private philanthropy. It is affiliated with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City.
