The 2014 Conference is SOLD OUT. Thanks to all of you who are coming!!
We invite you to join us for the Idaho Quality of Life Coalition's annual Hospice & Palliative Care Conference. Once again, this year we have two tracks: Clinical and Admin. We are not having an awards ceremony this year. We are in the process of revamping the award process for next year. Lunch will be provided to all and is included in your registration fee.
***It is important to note that we are going paperless this year. All registrants must provide a valid email address. As the conference approaches, your materials will be emailed to you. You can then either print your own sets or view your course materials on a computer or tablet. The Coalition will not provide any printouts.
Track 1: EPEC - "Education in Palliative and End-of-life Care" - 7 hr Class I CME
Instructor: Dr. Kevin Clifford, St. Alphonsus Palliative Care Department.
Early Bird, Until May 19- $100

In-depth Course Description click HERE
This course was developed at Northwestern University. Dr. Clifford is a certified EPEC instructor and will deliver various chapters from the EPEC curriculum. The EPEC curriculum combines didactic sessions, video presentations, interactive discussions, and practice exercises. It teaches fundamental palliative care skills in communication, ethical decision making, psychosocial considerations, and symptom management. Its curricular materials and accompanying take-home messages can easily be adapted for teaching sessions targeted at interdisciplinary audiences. Each participant will receive the entire EPEC manual, power point slides and access to videos online. This alone is a $200 value if you were to order these sets from the EPEC program.
This course will be ideal for any clinical staff but is targeted for mid-level providers and physicians. Details of the course will be distributed as the agenda is finalized. It will include a pain management module as well as other Palliative Care topics. We are still working out the final details, but it should provide 7 hours of CME.****CMEs will be available for NPs, PAs and MDs.
IDQOL CEs for all others.
The Cambia Health Foundation Rural Practice Scholarship: As an incentive to bring Idaho Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, who work in a more rural setting, to this important event, the Coalition, in conjunction with the Cambia Health Foundation, is offering a $200 travel scholarship to the first 25 PAs or NPs that register and that practice more than 200 miles from Boise. To receive your CAMBIA Travel Scholarship, simply register, pay the course fee and then email: info@IDQOL.org. In your email let them know that you have registered, that you are either an Idaho PA or NP and where you practice (at least 200 miles from Boise). The first 25 will receive the scholarship. When the scholarship fund has been exhausted, notice will be posted on this conference webpage. Your $200 travel stipend will be given to you as you check in the morning of the conference. We are also offering a limited number of seats for current PA/NP students at a reduced cost (visit registration link above). If you have any questions, call Casey Corbin, Coalition Director at 841-1862. We hope those of you living closer than 200 miles from Boise will also join us for the EPEC CME Course June 2, 2014.
