Comprehensive Advanced Palliative Care Education (CAPCE)
Comprehensive Advanced Palliative Care Education (CAPCE) Program
The Comprehensive Advanced Palliative Care Education (CAPCE) Program is designed to align with the Model to Guide Hospice Palliative Care: Based on National Principles and Norms of Practice (CHPCA 2002). CAPCE was developed in 2002 by the Palliative Pain and Symptom Management Consultation Program (PPSMCP) of Southwestern Ontario.
Consistent with the PPSMCP´s reputation of providing the highest quality hospice palliative care education opportunities, in 2013 and 2017 CAPCE was redesigned to be reflective of best practice, evidence-based hospice palliative care and knowledge translation strategies in order to effectively meet the needs of the learners. This six-month process was facilitated by experts in education design and knowledge translation, and informed by learner feedback, and local, regional and provincial clinical experts in hospice palliative care.
Note: The Core Fundamentals of Hospice Palliative Care program is a prerequisite for the CAPCE program.
The CAPCE program is currently being offered in various geographies of Southwestern Ontario:
