Palliative care is a service provided by an interdisciplinary team, helping improve the quality of life for seriously ill patients and their families. Policy focusing on palliative care in the 21st century addresses the needs of older adults who suffer from a serious illness, including education about the benefits of palliative care. The under-utilization of palliative care partly stems from lack of knowledge about the topic. This project report was an educational module about palliative care that can be added to a gerontology course taken by a future workforce that may assist patients who could benefit from palliative care. A PowerPoint, student resource guide, and instructor’s guide were reviewed by an expert panel, who reported that the material was easy to understand, informative, and contained helpful information. This project report helps bridge the educational gap about palliative care for students participating in CSULB’s upper division GE gerontology course.
