Redesigning Your Experience
As we look ahead to the 2022 Annual Assembly, the health and well-being of our meeting attendees, staff and vendors remains a top priority. We continue to monitor the latest world and local conditions, new technologies, and personal safety concerns and are prepared to make adjustments as necessary. We will continue to work with our partners to incorporate in-person and potential virtual/on-demand opportunities. Stay tuned to this page as we continue to redesign your 2022 Annual Assembly experience.
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 more than 3,400 of your colleagues and peers to share research, clinical best practices, and practice-related guidance to advance the specialty and improve patient care.
On-demand access to the Annual Assembly content closed on May 20. The deadline to claim your CME/MOC was June 1 at 11:59pm CT.
Calls for Proposals
Abstracts for the 2022 Annual Assembly are open for submission June 21 - July 14, 2021 for concurrent sessions and scientific and quality improvement papers and posters.
Learn more about each call and prepare to submit your abstract.
A second call for abstracts will open October 1-18, 2021 for case submissions and scholar eposters
Each completed abstract submission for open calls will be assessed a $30 fee to help offset the rising costs of technology to manage the abstract system. We appreciate your understanding and support.
To ensure your presentations' clinical images are anonymized, we advise that you follow these best practices.
About the Annual Assembly
The Annual Assembly will feature high quality education and opportunities to network with your hospice and palliative care colleagues on our new virtual platform. The meeting has been designed so you can network one on one, in small groups, and with faculty during the educational sessions via chat and Twitter. 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.
