The APPEAL Project was developed by African American experts in palliative care with input from the core EPEC faculty. The APPEAL Project stands apart from other nationally recognized palliative care curricula because, in addition to offering technical expertise, it offers insights about providing palliative care to African American patients and their families. APPEAL training is offered through the Duke Institute on Care at the End of Life (ICEOL).

EPEC for Geriatrics is an adaptation of EPEC by the Ethics Committee of the American Geriatrics Society (AGS). It was designed to teach concepts in palliative care that are specific to the field of geriatrics. The AGS is dedicated to improving the health, independence, and quality of life of all older people. This society provides leadership to health care professionals, policy makers, and the public by implementing and advocating for programs in patient care, research, professional and public education, and public policy. In addition to adapting EPEC content, EPEC for Geriatrics developed new material relevant to palliative care in long-term care facilities, transitions of care, and pain assessment in cognitively impaired patients. It was taught at the May 2003 AGS Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD.
