We are looking for the spread of skills, ideas, and solutions that will improve health care delivery and the lives of all people living with a serious illness.
But how can we use our skills, ideas, and processes in ways that benefit patients who are suffering from a system that doesn’t adequately address their needs? It’s all about improving care quality.
That’s why the goals of CAPC’s first John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge were to 1) increase the number of palliative care specialists maintaining the highest level of all specialist palliative care skills, and 2) increase the number of other specialties and disciplines enhancing their skills in communication, pain management, and symptom management.
Organizations and individuals participated in one or more of the four Challenge categories below.
The Four Tipping Point Challenge Categories Were
