The best way to keep informed of all the changes occurring within hospice and palliative care is to participate in a CHAPCA educational program.

Education and Conferences

Each event is planned with you in mind, examining issues, trends, and recent developments affecting you and your work. Programs take place in person, and via audio-conferences, video conferences and webinars.

Our goal is to ensure that all educational participants are better informed and have a renewed sense of commitment to delivering quality end-of-life care to their patients and families. Join us to learn new information and skills and find people with shared interests. Registration discounts are available for CHAPCA members.
