City of Hope is excited to present "Improving the Quality of Spiritual Care as a Dimension of Palliative Care" conference with generous support from Archstone Foundation.
Join us March 6 & 7, 2013
for a rare opportunity to network with others committed to improving the delivery of spiritual care in palliative care. The National Consensus Project (NCP) Guidelines and National Quality Forum (NQF) Preferred Practices served as the foundation for the recommendations for a Consensus Conference. In 2010, a partnership was formed to support nine selected demonstration projects that model the implementation of these recommendations for other programs to replicate.
This two day meeting will highlight each of the Demonstration sites and their accomplishments integrating spiritual care as part of palliative care within their respective institutions.
Included in the two day conference:
*No partial CEs given. You must attend entire program to receive CEs.
