What CAPCE Grads are saying:
“Love that the learning objectives are more geared at making change happen at work. Thank you all!”
“Often at my place of employment the conversations that need to happen, happen when in crisis. I will be working more closely with new admits to establish goals of care and ensure these are communicated to all levels of staff.”
“It was very informative, encouraged team discussion and problem solving.”
“I am assessing patients’ presentation in more detail and paralleling the information in the Pallium Pocketbook for reference and guidance. I am also feeling more confident in my conversations with patients and with their families, especially in setting/considering goals of care. I look forward to shifts as opportunities to integrate the class learning.”
“Great program! Would definitely recommend this to other staff members who are interested in palliative care.”
