Reaching the
Tipping Point

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 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 this year’s first Tipping Point Challenge are 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 can participate in one or more of the four Challenge categories below.
