Because all patients should receive the primary palliative care they need.


Our vision for the future is a healthcare system in which all patients receive the primary palliative care they need. To make this vision a reality, the Education in Palliative & End-of-Life Care Program (EPEC) educates healthcare professionals on the essential clinical competencies of palliative and end-of-life care.

About Us

Creating training that is relevant to specialty healthcare professionals, caregivers and patients who seek specialty care makes our vision of getting all patients access to palliative care more attainable."
