2019 General Assembly Registration 

The SWHPN General Assembly is the ultimate in learning, fellowship, and self-care for hospice and palliative care professionals, including:

  • In-depth learning from the experts: SWHPN is again offering our popular series of pre-conference workshops giving you the chance to learn from leaders in the field in a smaller, more intimate environment. 
  • New in 2019! Roundtable discussions: small gatherings of attendees with similar special interests and needs for sharing ideas and resources for collaborative work.These discussions will provide opportunities for open discussion and creativity in a more informal and less structured setting.
  • New in 2019! Poster Walks: Join your colleagues on a guided poster walk in the main conference room, and listen in as presenters  showcase their work. Conference chairs will lead small groups around curated, pre-selected posters.
  • The highest-quality plenaries and breakout sessions: from professional development to sharing the latest research on and clinical practice, ethics, and policy, SWHPN 2019 will once again offer the most comprehensive, diverse learning opportunities for palliative and hospice professionals.
  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): CEUs will once again be offered at the 2019 Assembly (we have offered 12-13 CEs during each of our past six conferences, and expect to offer the same this year). Official announcement coming soon.
