AAHPM and HPNA strive to ensure that participants in our activities experience a welcoming environment that offers a healthy, productive community and workspace for all attendees.
We take pride in creating an environment that welcomes, engages, inspires, and empowers everyone to reach their full potential while appreciating the rich diversity of all individuals in our increasingly global hospice and palliative care community. We support equality of opportunity and treatment for everyone. A commitment to a welcoming environment that embraces diverse perspectives, cultures, and experiences is expected of all attendees, including guests, staff, contractors, exhibitors, and participants in educational sessions and social events.
"This is where we come for rejuvenation, to be reenergized about the field and really find our passion that is stretched in the day to day moments of patient care. So I find that after this meeting, I'm always reenergized and refocused on doing the best for my patients."
