Palliative Care: A Call to Action 7th Annual Summit

April 14-15, 2015 | #CCCC15


Palliative care is a movement and you’re a part of it.

Join with the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California and leaders in the palliative care community as we answer a call to action and explore opportunities that will shape the future of health care in California and across the nation.

  • DISCOVER best practices for creating meaningful and engaging patient experiences to improve end-of-life care.
  • IMMERSE yourself in two days of talks, breakouts, and social events, including not-to-be-missed office hours—your chance to directly connect with Summit speakers.
  • MEET thought leaders and palliative care innovators from around the country.
