The unique design of the Education in Palliative & End-of-Life Care Program (EPEC) transforms participants into certified EPEC trainers who can implement effective palliative care practices at their home institutions and teach others to do the same. More than 2,500 EPEC trainers in the U.S. and 25 countries abroad teach the EPEC curriculum to thousands of their colleagues each year. EPEC’s annual event features two Become a Trainer conferences that focus on the acquisition of palliative care competencies and teaching skills, as well as a professional development workshop to further enhance teaching and leadership skills. Participants may attend one or both conferences. More information can be found on our Conferences page.
