DHCS funds $244,000 to train Medi-Cal providers through CSU Institute for Palliative Care

DHCS chose the Institute to deliver the training based on its record of providing convenient, high-quality palliative care education for health professionals across multiple disciplines.

Under the contract, Medi-Cal providers and their clinician staff – including doctors, nurses, and social workers – can obtain free enrollment in the Institute’s online programs. Eligible applicants care for Medi-Cal beneficiaries and can benefit from gaining a better understanding of palliative care, how to recognize the chronically or seriously ill people who need it, and how to provide palliative care services.

All Institute courses, developed by clinical experts in palliative care, are online, engaging, interactive, and accessible 24/7.  Each course provides continuing education credits or continuing medical education credits.

Enrollment will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis. DHCS will continue to accept applications until all funding has been committed.

Providers or clinicians eligible for free courses under the DHCS funding may apply online. DHCS will review all applications, and the Institute will notify applicants about a decision within approximately five business days.

This program is available immediately, until the funding is expended.

About the Author: Carrie Brunner

Carrie Brunner grew up in a small town in northern New Brunswick. She studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married her husband one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children. Carrie writes mostly on provincial stories.
