Next CEPAC meeting taking a deep dive into effectiveness of palliative care
The March meeting of CEPAC, New England’s comparative effectiveness council, will be in Hartford, CT on the 31st. CEPAC is an independent council of clinicians, academics and consumer advocates across the region who take a deep dive into research around treatments for specific conditions, sorting out and voting on clinical effectiveness, but also which are worth the money specifically for New England. Previous meetings have addressed opiod addiction, breast cancer screening and depression treatments. The March 31st meeting will address Palliative Care: Barriers, Opportunities and Considerations for Quality Improvement. Very smart, independent people discussing how to do the best thing for patients and pocketbooks on the issues vexing the health system. We are lucky to have them in our region.
