Kokua Mau is once again hosting a virtual palliative care conference: “Aligning Practice with Evidence”. The high quality, state of the art live-stream conference will be for 2 half-days on July 26 and 27, in Honolulu.

The virtual conference is organized and presented by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO), the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA).

This is a great chance to earn continuing education credits from national experts without having to leave home.  For the latest (updated) Conference Program please visit the NHPCO website.

2017 Virtual Conference Objectives:

At the completion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the current state of evidence-based practice in hospice and palliative care;
  • Discern the accuracy and quality of evidence in hospice and palliative care;
  • Identify common clinical approaches/practices that are not evidence-based and discuss evidence-based alternatives.

As we have done in the past years, we meet at a central location in Honolulu, this year at Islands Hospice, for both days to watch the presentations together, starting at 6:30 am HST (12:30 PM EST).

  • Please arrive early, we start at 6:30am sharp, since this is in the afternoon on the East Coast.
  • Coffee, drinks, breakfast and snacks will be generously provided by Islands Hospice.
  • We will send details via email to registered participants only about location, room number, parking etc.
