Palliative care is an essential component of medical care for patients with serious illness. The field is growing rapidly, presenting healthcare institutions and systems with challenges about how to meet the need with high quality care. Palliative Care Education and Practice (PCEP) is a comprehensive course delivered by expert palliative care clinicians and educators who create a warm, welcoming environment conducive to deep learning and growth. PCEP provides physicians, nurses, and social workers a structure to efficiently acquire the skills and perspectives necessary to influence this changing health care environment. At the conclusion of PCEP, participants will have acquired significant skills in the clinical practice and teaching of comprehensive, interdisciplinary palliative care, as well as having gained expertise in leading and managing improvements in palliative care education and practice at their own institutions.
