2014 Innovation Forum
About the forum: The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s (NHPCO) Innovation Forum will gather key leaders, practitioners and hospice palliative care stakeholders in an experience designed to identify complex challenges, engage in stimulating conversations and discover breakthrough solutions, i.e. actionable ideas, strategies and plans for the future.
Complex challenges. The hospice palliative care environment is at the brink of a cataclysmic shift. Changes in healthcare significantly impact the field. Regulatory scrutiny, payment reform and staff morale are increasingly important issues. All threaten the compassionate and necessary care we deliver to patients and families.
Stimulating conversations. Where can we look for answers? What experts have a “vision” for us? Which are the catalysts for major culture change? Where do we need to connect – and with whom – to ensure quality, compassionate care at the end of life thrives?
Breakthrough solutions. The answers are within us. If we come together to think creatively, strategically, with great vision and passion – the solutions, strategies and way forward will become apparent. Then, together, we can move forward mobilized by the same pioneer spirit that sparked the US hospice movement 40 years ago.
