Building Generalist Palliative Care Capabilities in California's Safety Net Health Care Systems

In 2020 and 2021, LifeCourse Strategies, a California-based strategic health consulting organization, supported California public health care systems to plan and pilot generalist palliative care interventions through the Generalist Palliative Care project. Special palliative care teams worked with a service line to integrate basic palliative care processes into their routine care with the goal of developing high-quality serious illness care throughout the state's safety net health care systems.

This webinar will describe the processes used and the lessons learned throughout the experience. Faculty from the initiative will discuss how the approaches used by these organizations can be adopted or adapted by any health care system that wants to improve the care of their patients with serious illness.
