3rd Annual U.S. Celebration of World Hospice & Palliative Care Day

3rd Annual U.S. Celebration of World Hospice & Palliative Care Day

 October 3 to October 4, 2022 


Access to palliative care is a right to the highest standard of health and an integral component of universal health coverage for patients with cancer and other serious illnesses. This innovative 2-day virtual conference is a U.S.-based “coming together” that strives to foster community building and wisdom sharing. A multidisciplinary group of palliative care leaders at the forefront of research, policy, and clinical practice will present on diverse topics, including dignity in care, racism and structural discrimination, and care for historically excluded populations.

Condensed over two half-days, this year’s program includes:

  • Special breakout sessions will include experts on moral suffering and burnout, prison palliative care, opioid use disorder, and medical aid in dying (selection made at registration).
  • A highlight of this meeting will be a session on the patient experience and a dedicated session on the caregiver experience.
  • A special Schwartz Rounds will facilitate a case-based open and honest discussion on the social and emotional issues health care workers face while caring for patients and families.
  • Updates will be provided from the Lancet Commission on Global Access to Palliative Care and Pain Relief and the Lancet Commission on the Value of Death.
  • Participants will engage in discussions with interprofessional and internationally based presenters about the patient, family, and community implications for palliative care practice and scholarship.
  • An overall theme to promote advocacy and leadership within the specialty will be featured throughout the meeting.
