Conference Overview

The theme for NHPCO’s 14th Clinical Team Conference and Pediatric Intensive underscores a drive for the hospice and palliative care field to innovate and pursue excellence in all endeavors.  The conference will explore the care continuum, interdisciplinary, team, medical, clinical, psychosocial, spiritual, bereavement and team innovation and excellence – in all their myriad facets, ideas, forms and outcomes.

Whether you provide care to patients and families directly through interdisciplinary practice, manage interdisciplinary team staff, lead quality efforts or are responsible for related practices and processes, you need to keep pace with evidence-based practice, adapt and respond to impending changes in the field, work in partnership with your community to meet patient and family needs across the care continuum and ensure that every component of the care and services you provide is excellent.
