The Road Ahead presents and builds on the findings from the 2016 convening in Sacramento, “The Road Ahead for Serious Illness Care in California” is based on the 2015 Dying in California report,  and  the 2014 publication Dying in America: Improving Quality and Honoring Individual Preferences Near the End of Life, from the Institute of Medicine.  Judy Thomas, CEO of the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California, will kick off the day!

There will be four central focus areas:

  • Delivery of Care

  • Public Education and Engagement

Draft agenda:

  • The Road We’ve Been On—California
