The aim of this project was to implement an effective educational initiative using standardized guidelines to increase provider knowledge of patients who qualify for palliative care referral, while subsequently impacting referral rates. Educational sessions were developed outlining referral recommendations from the AAP, National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), and those included in the institutional policy. Presurveys and postsurveys validated by two clinical experts in the field were administered to participants at the time of the intervention. Referral rates for the organization were also collected for two months prior to the intervention, and two months following the intervention.
