Reaching the
Tipping Point

How can we use our skills 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 third John A. Hartford Foundation Tipping Point Challenge are twofold: 1) to increase the number of specialties and disciplines enhancing their clinical skills, and 2) to catalyze innovation that will make positive, breakthrough change in the care of serious illness.


Clinical Training


Two ways to compete: The greatest number of CAPC course completions within the timeframe of the competition. Or, the greatest number of course completions since becoming a member organization. For complete details, visit the FAQ section.



Initiatives, already implemented with proven outcomes, that are making breakthrough change in the care of serious illness can be submitted October 1-31, 2023.

CAPC hosts member and open-to-all events throughout the year.
