The first venue we want to focus on is key palliative care issues ( clinical, process, regulatory issues) for older adults in nursing homes/long term care/community living centers.

Format: Recommended length: 1000-1500 word limit ( not including abstract, tables, figures, references). No more than 20 references. No more than three tables and or figures.
Peer reviewed: Yes.
