HPCC offers one option for CHPCA®
recertification, by using a process known as the Hospice and Palliative Accrual for Recertification (HPAR). The HPAR process requires fulfilling practice hour requirements and the accumulation of 100 points of professional development activities over the preceding four years. Points can be accrued through continuing education, academic education, professional publications, professional presentations, precepting students, orienting staff, and volunteer service in professional organizations. Each area varies as to how the points are calculated and how many of the total points can be obtained by that method. For more information on recertification, visit the CHPCA® Recertification
