The PALLIATIVE RURAL EDUCATION PROJECT: Begun in 2012 to bring palliative care education to rural communities in Louisiana and Mississippi, the Institute sends a palliative physician and a colleague to present programs to rural hospitals and hospices to help them learn how to improve the care they give to their patients and families. The partnership of the LA-MS Hospice Palliative Care Organization provides logistical and organizational support for each 2-day program. The Palliative Care Institute provides funding for all costs related to each program. Presentations offered are listed below.
