The Regence Foundation Launches Sojourns Program

04/05/10  Oregon

Sojourns is The Regence Foundation’s signature program to improve the care and quality-of-life for people with life-threatening or terminal illness and their supporting family members throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Utah.

Through Sojourns, The Regence Foundation works to:

  • Recognize leadership and innovation in end-of-life and palliative care
  • Expand access to high-quality palliative care that meets the needs of patients and families across the care continuum

Sojourns is comprised of two programs:

  • The Sojourns Award is a regional award honoring leadership and innovation in end-of-life and palliative care. More details about the Sojourns Award will be announced in early October 2009.
  • Sojourns Pathway Program offers comprehensive support including funding and best-practices training and mentoring to nonprofit and public hospitals and partnering community-based organizations interested in developing, implementing and enhancing palliative care services.
