The OMA has designed these End of Life Care (EOLC) modules to build comfort and promote awareness among physicians and community based specialists in their understanding of the Palliative Care approach, communication tools, information resources and billing options.

This activity has not been formally reviewed by the CFPC; however, it is eligible for non-certified credits. Mainpro+ participants may also earn additional certified credits by completing a Linking Learning exercise.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able:

  • Define “palliative care” and the “palliative care approach”
  • Identify patients who could benefit from a palliative care approach earlier in the illness
  • Activate a palliative care approach earlier in the illness trajectory
  • Expand your role in providing a palliative care approach in your setting
