Planning a Hospital-based Palliative Care Program: A Primer for Institutional Leaders
Planning a Hospital-based Palliative Care Program: A Primer for Institutional Leaders

CAPC
The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) has been established as a national initiative of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to promote wider access to high-quality palliative care in hospitals and health systems.

"Planning a Hospital-Based Palliative Care Program: A Primer for Institutional Leaders" is the first in the Technical Assistance Series published by the Center. Subsequent monographs in this series will aim to further the understanding of the palliative medicine field, and to provide practical information on the design, development and management of provider-based palliative care services.

Dr. Diane Meier is the Co-director of The Robert Wood Johnson Center to Advance Palliative Care at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she is also the Director of the Hertzberg Palliative Care Institute, Professor of Geriatrics and Internal Medicine and the Catherine Gaisman Professor of Medical Ethics. Dr. Meier's major interests include medical decision-making at the end of life, promotion of palliative medicine practice in tertiary care teaching medical centers, and educating students and residents in the care of patients with serious and life threatening illness.

Robert d'Antuono is Deputy Drector of the Center to Advance Palliative Care, a position he assumed after 8 years at the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC).
