Palliative care (PC) is a national and global priority, yet there is insufficient knowledge regarding PC among generalist clinicians. An interdisciplinary educational initiative was implemented to enhance a hospital workforce's PC knowledge and skills. More than 1000 clinicians attended at least 1 of 27 educational offerings. Measurable gains were evident in key outcome measures including PC referrals and advanced directive documentation. Changes reflected a transformation of workforce culture and resulted in 2 national awards for improving PC.
