This photograph is from a collection of images that depicts our evolving culture of death in America, how we emotionally, spiritually, and practically experience mourning, grief, and loss. Our social and cultural environments impact and shape our responses to death and form the basis of traditional rituals as shown in this picture of three women having a picnic in a cemetery in memory of their loved ones.

Accreditation

The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 67.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Participants can earn up to 67.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, consisting of 34.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participating in the live activity Palliative Care Education and Practice, Part 1 (Pediatric and Adults Tracks) and 32.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participating in the live activity Palliative Care Education and Practice, Part 2 (Pediatric and Adults Tracks). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities. AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 67.00 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

"The PCEP class was absolutely critical to my being able to finally start a Palliative Care program at my hospital. I have been trying for five year to receive funding for an inpatient PC consult service, without success. PCEP not only gave me great credibility, it also prepared me to be a better clinician and educator. I highly recommend the program to anyone interested in furthering the field of Palliative Medicine."
-Shoshana Helman, MD
