Rates and Registration Information

Washington, DC is, without question, one of the most important cities in the world – and the site for the 2017 NHPCO Management and Leadership Conference. More than a conference, this is an event for leaders from throughout the end-of-life community to unite, interact, and focus on timely issues that will lead us into the future. It will be an opportunity to amplify the voice of the hospice and palliative care community in our nation’s capital. And it will provide us with an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate all that we do to advance the continuum of care.

Over the course of the conference, participants will focus on excellence in hospice and palliative care service delivery, explore policy issues, delve into compliance concerns, allow organizational leaders to more effectively engage with their staff and communities, and enhance quality throughout the care continuum.

Hosted at the historic Washington Hilton in the heart of DC, we hope you will come be a part of this unique event at a pivotal time for the hospice and palliative care community.
