National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization Conferences

In collaboration with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), Promoting Excellence in End-of-Life Care presented learning tracks at three consecutive NHPCO conferences – the 18th Management and Leadership Conference in Phoenix in September 2003, the 5th Clinical Team Conference in Las Vegas in March 2004 and the 19th Management and Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. in September – October 2004.

Faculty from Promoting Excellence demonstration projects and national workgroups presented sessions at each of the tracks that explored successful approaches to delivering palliative care and highlighted several replicable models of care. The NHPCO – Promoting Excellence partnership produced CD-ROMs of the three tracks that are available for purchase through the NHPCO Marketplace. These CD-ROMs can be used in a variety of educational venues by clinicians and administrators.
