Palliative Care Education and Practice (PCEP)

A course for palliative care clinical and education leaders

HMS course (#732756-2202)

PCEP is designed for palliative care specialists, champions, and educators, as well as generalist and specialist physicians and nurses who wish to gain additional competencies in palliative care. PCEP enhances clinicians' skills in communication, teaching, and clinical practice.

Palliative care specialists charged with new program initiatives and who would benefit from mentoring are also encouraged to attend.

The pediatric track highlights the unique aspects of palliative care for children.

Please note that mastery of spoken and written English is essential for successful participation in PCEP. Candidates from countries for whom English is not the primary language may be interviewed to determine fluency.
