12th Annual HPNA Clinical Practice Forum Opens Thursday

Clinical conference specifically created for hospice and palliative nurses

PITTSBURGH , PA, USA, September 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association is proud to present the 12th Annual Clinical Practice Forum, opening Thursday, September 27, and continuing into Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the Marriott City Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

This year’s topic, “Continuing the Path: Advancing Expert Care in Hospice and Palliative Nursing” offers a variety of sessions created by nurses for nurses, on subjects like hospice triage, telemedicine, pain management in the opioid crisis, comprehensive nursing assessments, care delivery regulations, and clinician-surrogate disagreements for care. Our opening plenary speaker Nadine Barrett, PhD, MA, MS, will speak about health disparities, diversity, and inclusion, and the upcoming National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines, due out later this fall, will be reviewed.

This year, the Clinical Practice Forum offers five preconference sessions, a reception on Thursday evening, round table discussions on Friday afternoon, poster presentation displays on Friday evening, micro learning sessions with leaders in the field on Saturday morning, exhibitors both days, and a special reception on Friday evening presented by HPNA and Delta Care RX.

Thank you goes out to our platinum sponsor Delta Care RX, a nationwide hospice pharmacy provider, supporting both the Friday event reception and the poster presentations, as well as presenting during the forum. Other sponsors include the Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation as gold sponsors, Mary Ann Liebert Inc. as our silver sponsor, HospiCorp as our bronze sponsor, and Duquesne University as our nursing school collaboration sponsor.
