Get Your Palliative Care Program Listed in CAPC’s National Palliative Care Provider Directory

The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) has recently relaunched its national directory for palliative care. They are urging all palliative care programs to ensure they are listed in the directory. This directory makes it easier for patients, families, and healthcare professionals to locate a specialist palliative care provider close to them. Considering the large geographical area of South Dakota and limited number of palliative care specialists, it is crucial to ensure that all the teams in the state are easy to locate.

The directory is a part of the Get Palliative Care website, which receives over 1.2 million visits per year and is the primary source of information for patients and families seeking information about palliative care in all settings. According to CAPC’s announcement, it will also help referring clinicians find your program more easily and accurately map palliative care specialists nationwide.

It is completely free for all palliative care programs in the United States to update their information or to add their program’s information to the directory. You don’t have to be a CAPC member to list your program. However, to be listed on the Palliative Care Provider Directory, your program must meet all five eligibility requirements. Make sure you meet all these requirements before listing your program.
  1. Your program provides interprofessional palliative care services, separate from hospice services.  At least one of the program’s clinicians should have advanced training in specialty palliative care, such as board certification.  The team should support patients and their caregivers with complex symptom management, as well as communication about their care goals. NOTE: palliative care programs may have other names, such as “supportive care,” “quality of life care,” “serious illness care,” etc.
  2. The palliative care program is run by a health care organization.
  3. The palliative care program has been providing patient care for at least six months.
  4. The palliative care program provides care to patients across one or more care settings (e.g., hospital, patient home, office practice, long-term care facility, via telehealth).
  5. The palliative care program provides care to patients in the United States or its territories, including American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
