Experience from Anywhere
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.
Registrants from the 2021 Assembly can login to the Annual Assembly event platform through May 20. CE/MOC credits are due May 31.
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, #hapc21, 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, schedule for February 9-12 in Nashville, TN
