2021 Annual Assembly of Hospice & Palliative Care

February 17-19, 2021  |  Experience from Anywhere

The premier educational event for hospice and palliative care providers. 



The Annual Assembly of Hospice and Palliative Care, presented by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) and the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM), is a 3-day event that brings together more than 3,400 of your colleagues and peers to share research, clinical best practices, and practice-related guidance to advance the specialty and improve patient care. 

The 2021 virtual meeting will still capture your heart, re-energize your spirit, and stimulate your mind, but in new and different ways. We know you want the best hospice and palliative care education and the opportunity to connect with others - and we're prepared to provide both. Stay tuned as we continue to reimagine the 2021 Annual Assembly.
