PCQN Webinar – PCQC Dataset Review and Q&A

As many of you know, PCQN has been working diligently with our partners – the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) at Mt. Sinai, National Palliative Care Research Center (NPCRC), the Global Palliative Care Quality Alliance (GPCQA) at Duke, and the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) – to unite our registries and establish the Palliative Care Quality Collaborative (PCQC). PCQC is a new non-profit organization, home of a new national palliative care data registry system that will capture both program and patient-level quality data. Based on our progress to date, we are still expecting that PCQC will be open and fully operational in mid-2020. For more information about PCQC, please visit https://palliativequality.org/

During this webinar, we will review the new PCQC dataset for the inpatient and community-based registries. We will highlight what has changed, what has stayed the same, and also answer any questions you have about the new dataset. We hope you can join! If you have any questions about the transition in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to [email protected]
