Center to Advance Palliative Care
January 10, 2018
10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Palliative care has seen soaring growth over the past decade. But access is not enough. CAPC's goal is to ensure that all clinicians and organizations caring for patients living with serious illness have the skills to provide better care. This applies to palliative care specialists and non-palliative care specialists alike.
Join us as CAPC kicks off its 20th anniversary year with this important briefing about Project Tipping Point and the Tipping Point Challenge. Attendance is free and open to all.

ALZHEIMER'S: EVERY MINUTE COUNTS
Be sure to tune in for Alzheimer's: Every Minute Counts, a 60-minute documentary on PBS. It is an urgent wake-up call about the national public health threat posed by Alzheimer's disease. This powerful documentary illuminates the social and economic consequences for the country unless a medical breakthrough is discovered for this currently incurable disease.

The Conversation Project has a free downloadable Conversation Starter Kit for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia to help patients and their families talk about end-of-life care. It is the first of its kind, offering advice tailored for caregivers and patients.
