Fast Facts & Concepts

Fast Facts and Concepts provide concise, practical, peer-reviewed and evidence-based summaries on key palliative care topics important to clinicians and trainees caring for patients facing serious illness. They were started in 2000 by Eric Warm, MD, as a palliative care teaching tool at the University of Cincinnati. They were subsequently adopted as a standard feature of the National End-of-Life Residency Education Project by David Weissman, MD, who is a professor emeritus at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Until 2014, Fast Facts and Concepts were published by the End of Life/Palliative Education Resource Center (EPERC; now closed) at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Since January of 2015, they have been published on the Palliative Care Network of Wisconsin’s website.

Its audience expands beyond all 50 states in the USA to more than 15 countries. Besides being utilized as a just-in-time clinical and education tool, they are also utilized to onboard new palliative care clinicians as well as a board preparation tool for new Hospice and Palliative Medicine physicians. Dr. Sean Marks, a MCW Palliative Care physician faculty is the current editor-in-chief of Fast Facts and Concepts.
