Accurate prognostication is critical to recognizing the need for hospice and palliative care and advanced planning in patients with advanced disease. Unfortunately, formal education on how to use prognostication is often lacking. Providers need evidence-based education on prognosticating a variety of life-threatening illnesses and also those with multi-morbidities. Providers need the opportunity to apply knowledge to cases to improved their competence in prognostication. This activity engages the learner in case-based self-assessment questions and includes references and rationale for responses. The online self-assessment allows the learner to engage the content on demand at her/his convenience.
