Continuing Education/Continuing Medical Education (CE/CME)

This NHPCO educational activity offers CE/CME credit (for NBCC, “clock hours”) for Counselors, Nurses, Physicians and Social Workers. The material presented in the education sessions represents the opinions of the faculty and not necessarily the views of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO); the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC); the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC); The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME); and the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

Please Note: The maximum number of credit hours (for NBCC, “clock hours”) offered for each discipline is based on attending all qualified education programs, preconference seminars and main conference sessions. Credit hours are determined based on individual attendance and may be less than the maximum number offered.
