Abstract

The National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care (NCP) has put forth eight domains of clinical practice guidelines that address the multidisciplinary nature of palliative and end-of-life (EOL) care. Extant surveys to assess education needs of palliative and EOL workers, however, have been constructed for individual professions. Thus we developed the End-of-life Professional Caregiver Survey (EPCS) as an instrument for assessing the palliative and EOL care-specific educational needs of multidisciplinary professionals.
