NHPCO is committed to supporting hospice and palliative care providers in continuous quality and performance improvement activities supporting safe, effective, and timely care outcomes for patients and families. That is why the 2023 Virtual Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on quality and safety.

The Conference Planning Committee crafted a program to advance the knowledge, competence, and performance of hospice and palliative care teams and individuals. During IDC2023, interdisciplinary team members from across the country will convene around quality and safety issues. This is your opportunity to tap into a national discussion.

Join your fellow hospice and palliative care interdisciplinary teams virtually in April to lead, inspire, and impact new possibilities in delivering care. Together, we can achieve results to improve performance.

Conference Topics:

      • Building Clinical Effectiveness
      • Creating a Culture of Safety
      • Fostering High Reliability Organizations
      • Transforming the Healthcare Delivery System

We look forward to coming together virtually in April 2023. Please join hospice and palliative care teams and individuals from across the country to be a part of this exciting, educational experience.
