Nurse Practitioners are invited to attend a 2-day educational program on the practical management of common palliative care problems.
At the end of the program, learners will be able to identify and integrate into their practice practical management strategies for common palliative care problems, regardless of their practice setting.
If you are not an NP, but work with NPs, please advise them of this opportunity.

This program began with a needs assessment distributed to Nurse Practitioners that was reviewed and translated into an event design by the planning committee. The planning committee worked with NPs to develop realistic learning objectives that NPs thought would be realistically useful in their practice. This program will be evaluated for continuous quality improvement informing future offerings. No commercial interest was involved in the development of this program.
