Serious Illness Management Toolkit Bundle

Expand your primary palliative care skills and earn up to 5 AAPA Category 1 CME credits and 1.25 AAPA Category 1 Self-Assessment CME credits. Specially designed for PAs interested in palliative care for patients with serious and life-threatening illnesses. No matter what your discipline, all PAs come into contact with patients and families in this patient population. Be prepared to be that provider your patient needs, the colleague on your team that can step up for those difficult conversations, and the clinician that is thoughtful in taking care of themselves as well as others. Serious Illness Management Toolkit is a collaboration between AAPA and The Physician Assistants in Hospice and Palliative Medicine (PAHPM).
