The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) and Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) will host a two-day Virtual Conference on July 18 - 19, 2018.

The conference will help hospice and palliative care professionals improve their care during “transitions” – the challenging times when providing excellent continuity, communication, continuing assessment and quality care are most critical yet sometimes go awry.

Some of the sessions will tap into families’ experiences with hospice and palliative care; they will teach us how to better respond to their needs. Other sessions will help us better navigate and facilitate turning points in care, with topics such as prognostication, deprescribing, when mental illness is present and other hot topics that require a shift in our assessment, intervention and even the direction of care. All will be focused on mastery and help ensure that care of the highest caliber is provided.

Provided live via the internet, Turning Points – Mastering Transitions in Care will feature:

  • Live-streaming plenary speakers
  • Webinar-based concurrent sessions
  • Video Library
  • Unique opportunities for interaction
  • CE/CME credit for nurses and physicians (during the live event only)
  • Unlimited on-demand access for 3 months after the live event
