Since April 1, 2011 there has been a series of New York State Palliative Care bills that impose requirements on healthcare providers. This has created a level of confusion among the Internal Medicine physician community. NYACP has invited Anna Colello from the New York State Department of Health to help educate our members on the NYS Palliative Care Information Act (PCIA) and the Palliative Care Access Act (PCAA) requirements and the providers who will be subject to comply with the laws. The PCIA requires physicians and nurse practitioners to offer information and counseling about palliative care to patients with a terminal illness. After participating in this webinar, physicians will be able to understand the requirements and the differences between the PCIA and PCAA for meaningful discussions with patients.
