2019 GHPCO Annual Clinical and Leadership Conference:

GHPCO Celebrates the Heroes of Hospice and Palliative Care


 Each year, GHPCO strives to create an annual educational conference focused on leadership and clinical topics from a variety of local, regional and national experts.  This year’s theme, “GHPCO Celebrates the Heroes of Hospice and Palliative Care” provides a broad platform from which to honor our hospice and palliative care heroes and discuss the changes in our system of care delivery which includes palliative medicine and hospice care. How do we acknowledge our “Heroes” who maintain regulatory compliance while providing end-of-life care? What is the reality of providing care to people who are living with advanced illness and experiencing dying? How do we honor the heroes who enhance our reputation with patients and their families while meeting the demands of hospice and palliative medicine?  Hospice and Palliative Care Heroes consistently meet the standards related to the principles of leadership, care delivery, process improvement, quality, and ethics and thereby are essential to enhancing the quality and effectiveness of care.

Join us at the Georgia Hospice and Palliative Care Organization's (GHPCO) Annual Leadership and Education Conference as we celebrate our industry as we seek to provide the highest quality hospice and palliative care services throughout Georgia.
