This community of practice was for those interested in connecting with peers in sessions facilitated by practice coaches. Participants had opportunities to bring knowledge to action in quality palliative care delivery, skill building through case-based discussions, shared experience, practice pearls, gold standard tools, breakout rooms, role play and more.
This series was made up of 14 sessions that took place from November 2021 to June 2022.
