[Clinical Session Presentation] Service learning often provides a tool or method for linking the classroom to the community.  There is growing movement to combine classroom learning with volunteer and structured community-based learning.  Using multiple interdisciplinary programs within the university (nursing, medicine, theology, and pharmacy), researchers were able to plan, implement, and evaluate a community educational service learning project designed to increase the educational needs of targeted faith-based communities in a large suburban area.  More specifically, the researchers targeted the need for palliative care support and end-of-life care needs as specific areas of support desired by members of these faith-based communities. The study is supported through two distinct phases: Phase 1 includes establishing data bases; determining churches in need of support services; development of education modules; determination of interest in lay educator training; and refining areas of need associated with palliative care.  Phase 2 includes development of training modules; and training the lay trainer.  Formative and summative evaluation methods are incorporated into the overall program and offer suggestions for change and refinement of education.  Input from community providers will continue to guide changes within the program. Discussion of each distinct phase of the study facilitates options for providing other types of community-based learning across the globe.
