A global workforce crisis in health care is on the horizon. By 2030, the WHO estimates there will be a global shortage of approximately 18 million health workers – 20% of the workforce needed to keep health care systems going. Additionally, the ongoing public health emergency has made a historic, multidimensional impact on staff. Hospice and palliative care organizations are already feeling the crisis.

NHPCO is committed to supporting hospice and palliative care providers during this time and that is why the fall virtual Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on workforce. This September, hospice and palliative care interdisciplinary teams will meet virtually to lead, inspire, and impact new possibilities in delivering care.

Conference Topics:

      • Interdisciplinary Team Retention and Development
      • Navigating Workforce Shortages in Challenging Times
      • Transforming the Health Care Delivery System

We look forward to coming together this September. Please join hospice and palliative care teams and individuals from across the country to be a part of this exciting, educational experience.
