For those who may qualify:


Qualified Medi-Cal providers and their clinician staff can apply for palliative care training, available for a limited time at no charge through an agreement with the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). These courses are offered through the California State University Institute for Palliative Care and applications are being accepted now.

This free online training will prepare providers to deliver palliative care services to Medi-Cal beneficiaries, in accordance with Senate Bill 1004 (Hernandez, 2014). Starting January 1, 2018, DHCS will implement the Medi-Cal palliative care program through managed care and fee-for-service providers.

The Institute’s courses are geared toward doctors, nurses, social workers and other health professionals interested in building their palliative care skills.

Qualified Medi-Cal providers, may apply today for this free palliative care training.
