Pre-Seminar Boot Camp
Developing Palliative Care in Community Settings:
Home, Office/Clinic, and Long-Term Care
Wednesday, November 8

Boot Camp is a day-long exploration of how to design and develop community-based palliative care programs. It offers beginners practical information on the nuts and bolts of planning a program in home, office, or long-term care settings. Through presentations and interactive exchanges with nationally-known faculty, attendees will discover how their local environment and payment model influence program design and identify the essential questions to address when building their palliative care service. Participants will network with other community-based palliative care pioneers and leave with a plan to move their programs forward.

What Will You Learn?

  • Critical questions to ask as you design and implement your program
  • How to design programs that respond to stakeholders’ priorities and organizational realities
  • The nuts and bolts of program design: who to serve; what services to offer; and how to staff the program
  • Strategies that align business plans and payment models with program design
  • Feasible approaches to gathering data that demonstrate value
  • How to translate Boot camp concepts into action and delineate next steps
  • Resources and tools to support your ongoing efforts

Who Should Attend?

Boot Camp is for administrators and clinicians of all disciplines who are developing a community-based palliative care program or who have launched their program. Boot Camp's curriculum applies to programs in home, office, or long-term care settings and is relevant for programs regardless of the age or diagnoses of the patients the program serves.
