Business Case for Palliative Care
Launches August 18th
TOUGH QUESTIONS - Providing the best care possible is what palliative care is all about. But how should a palliative care program be structured for a hospice, hospital, or a long-term care facility? How do providers get reimbursed? How is staff trained? How are old boundaries re-drawn to go from multidisciplinary to interdisciplinary? How will palliative care improve care delivery? Will it reduce costs or raise them?
REAL ANSWERS - We’ve created a fully online, four-hour self-paced course to help answer these tough questions. This course will help prepare you for launching a new palliative care program or it may help you re-evaluate how your current one is performing. A nationally recognized team of palliative care clinicians and analysts has developed this online course launching in August.

About the CSU Institute
for Palliative Care
The California State University Institute for Palliative Care at Cal State San Marcos (CSUSM) is the first statewide educational and workforce development initiative focused on palliative care. We offer health care professionals the opportunity to enhance their careers by learning more about palliative care. We educate our communities in San Diego County on the importance and power of palliative care.
Founded in 2012 by the largest higher-education system in the U.S., the Institute is addressing the growing need for professionals who can help individuals and families managing serious and chronic illnesses achieve quality of life along with quality of care. The Institute is leveraging the CSU’s renowned faculty expertise, its interdisciplinary curriculum, and its role as one of the largest producers of healthcare graduates in California to develop the palliative care workforce needed by 2020.
Envisioned to be a state-wide resource and nationally recognized model for serving the educational needs of today’s professionals, students and the public at large, the CSU Institute for Palliative Care will create a template for palliative care education and community engagement that can be adopted by other CSU campuses across the state and at institutions around the country.
We are always looking for opportunities to leverage our resources and expertise with like-minded organizations. Please contact us if we can be of assistance in your efforts to share this important message.
