During this office hour, PCQC and CAPC staff will review the program-level data dictionary and answer questions. Participation in program-level data collection (structures and processes) that is currently offered by the National Palliative Care Registry™ at no cost will remain free for all palliative care organizations. 

There are two different ways to contribute program-level data to the PCQC registry. See the descriptions below. 

Tier One Contribution: Create and maintain a Program Profile

Cost: Free

Description: Annually provide basic information about your palliative care program. Within the program profile, you have the option to display your program's information in the provider directory on https://getpalliativecare.org. Get Palliative Care is a website providing clear, comprehensive palliative care information for people living with a serious illness.

Tier Two Contribution: Annual Program- Level Survey

Cost: Free

Description: Annually, palliative care programs submit data about their program reflecting the previous year. This survey provides actionable data that programs can use to secure, expand and retain resources for delivery of high-quality palliative care, and to support the establishment of new palliative care programs where none exist. Data is collected on all service settings across the continuum of care, including hospital, long-term care, office/clinic, and home-based palliative care. For programs that previously contributed data to the National Palliative Care Registry™, your historical data is saved in PCQC's registry and in the future you will complete your annual surveys within the PCQC registry.

During 2021 you will report on 2020 data. The survey questions are available for your review. You can access a pdf version of the Annual Program-Level Hospital Survey questions here, and a pdf version of the Annual Program-Level Community Based Survey questions here

If you would like to submit questions in advance, please complete this short survey. Questions can also be asked live.
