Palliative care (PC) improves clinical outcomes at lower costs. Even so, clinical and administrative healthcare leaders need to understand local practices and outcomes when making program-development decisions.

Data describing how patients with serious illnesses are currently utilizing healthcare services, associated costs and revenues, and how your organization is performing on quality measures influence decisions about the need to create, sustain or expand PC.


This four hour, self-paced course can help with all these critical tasks. Designed to orient clinical and administrative leaders to the concepts that inform the business case for PC, it introduces the analyses that can be used to assess the impact of existing programs and identify growth opportunities for hospital, clinic, and home-based PC services. Developed by a nationally recognized team of clinicians and analysts, the course provides a roadmap for gathering the data needed to make the case for creating, sustaining or expanding your PC services.
