Request Palliative Care Education

Request an Education Session

 As a relatively new field of medicine, our palliative care team knows that there are a lot of people, families and healthcare providers who want to learn more about palliative care.  Stanford Palliative Care collaborates with Stanford Health Care's Patient Experience/Education, Engagement, and Promotion team to offer educational services to both our Stanford community and the broader communities of surrounding counties.

If you have a group who would like to receive additional education about palliative care, whether you are representing a group of healthcare providers at Stanford, non-Stanford healthcare providers, a community organization, or a group of community members,  please complete the form below to submit a request, and our team will be happy to get in contact with you about helping to meet your group's needs.

Please provide the date or approximate date(s) you would like to have the education session. Note: we typically need approximately 4 weeks notice in order to accommodate requests.
