This is a specialty-level training program for APRNs and PAs seeking to enhance their communication and clinical management skills in supportive care. It will not be offered in the winter of 2021 due to COVID. We recommend instead exploring the Specialty-level palliative care CME/CE webinar series held from 3/2- 4/27/2021.
This is a new collection of short, 30-40 minute, on-demand webinars for interdisciplinary health care providers and students seeking COVID-informed skills in topics ranging from pain and symptom management, resource allocation, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence and emotional contagion, and nursing home care ethics, and more.
This virtual webinar series consists of 8 one-hour presentations by highly trained palliative care clinicians and educators. Webinars are recorded in real time and available along with supplemental materials on the Canvas learning management system at the University of Chicago. No prior palliative care training is needed. This CME/CE series is recommended for advanced practice providers and physicians who aspire to or currently work in palliative care.
This is a self-paced virtual course for interdisciplinary health care professionals caring for patients with COVID-19 and other serious, advanced illnesses. Participants will develop an awareness of strategies for increasing psychological flexibility, acceptance, and value-based living with the intention of enhancing patient-provider interactions, psychosocial well-being, and overall quality of life.
This is a 6-month palliative care training program for interdisciplinary health care professionals who care for patients with serious, advanced illnesses. The curriculum is robust and comprehensive. Physicians, physician assistants, APRNs and PAs seeking to work in palliative care may apply to a 2-month extension in specialty-level palliative care. All sessions will be held on Zoom.
