Conference Highlights – CSU on Academic Palliative Care Education and Research; California HPCA

Life & Death Matters Post

At the end of September, I travelled to California for the
California State University 2nd Annual National Symposium for Academic Palliative Care Education & Research
At this conference I was delighted to co-present with Olga Ehrlich and Raeann Leblanc, on on integrating palliative care in core curriculum in the presentation title “Palliative and End of Life Nursing Education P4 Model.”

It was interesting to have participants take the AACN Competencies addressing hospice and palliative care for undergraduate nurses, and identify where in the nursing program the competencies could be addressed, and what resources could be used to help prepare students to meet the competencies. If you haven’t had the opportunity to reasd these competencies yet, take a moment to breeze through them. They speak of the firm desire to provide excellent hospice and palliative care, from diagnosis to death, and into bereavement.

My favorite quote from this conference was,

“The tipping point has been reached. Palliative Care is now the “must have” clinical program in the US and around the world. Now the challenges falls to academia to prepare the workforce….”
