At that time, CAPC will launch the first of its online curricula, broken into three specialized silos:

  • Communication Skills (eg, discussing serious news, discussing prognosis, conducting a family meeting)
  • Operational (eg, what is palliative care, designing your hospital-based program, building a business plan)
