2021: Embracing Change and Leading the Way 

Conference dates 
February 23, 2021 - February 26, 2021
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 and 2021 will be no different!  We had an amazing conference in 2020 and we are excited to produce an event that offers attendees the most engaging and effective conference experience possible!  
This year's theme,"2021: Embracing Change and Leading the Way" provides a broad platform from which to discuss the changes in our system of care delivery which includes palliative medicine and hospice care.  Where is our industry going in 2021?  How do we 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 enhance our reputation with patients and their families while continuing to meet the demands of hospice and palliative medicine?  Hospice and Palliative Care providers 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.  How will we enhance our care delivery model in 2021?
