February 9-12, 2022
Music City Center
Following three months of constructive conversation with stakeholders across AAHPM and HPNA, the decision has been reached to move forward with an in-person Annual Assembly, February 9-12, 2022, in Nashville, TN.
This decision in no way diminishes AAHPM and HPNA’s support of the transgender community or universal treatment of all individuals with dignity and respect. It instead reflects a majority consensus that, as professional associations, this meeting provides us with an opportunity to use our voices on-the-ground to positively impact and support those marginalized by Tennessee’s anti-transgender legislation.
While we are working diligently with partner-vendors to create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment for all, we acknowledge that there are individuals who will not feel comfortable travelling to Nashville in February. Accordingly, we will be providing a virtual option for accessing key components of the meeting online. AAHPM and HPNA thank you for your continued support and look forward to welcoming you to the 2022 Annual Assembly.

About the Annual Assembly
The Annual Assembly of Hospice and Palliative Care, presented by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA), is a 3-day event that brings together your colleagues and peers to share research, clinical best practices, and practice-related guidance to advance the specialty and improve patient care. Use the new hashtag, #hapc22, in your tweets.
The 2021 virtual meeting captured hearts, re-energized spirits, and stimulated minds, but in new and different ways. Attendees experienced the best hospice and palliative care education and the opportunity to connect with others. Stay tuned as we reimagine the 2022 Annual Assembly.
