A twice-monthly gathering of hospice and palliative care professionals learning from each other and improving the care we provide our patients

Established in 2020 as a result of the move to virtual learning that happened during the pandemic, the HAPC Virtual Didactics serves as a platform for anyone interested in palliative care to have access to high-quality lectures from experts in the field. Click the “Sign Up” link to sign up for the lecture series, and click on “Blog” to view past or current lectures. Click on the picture of the lecturer to enter the Zoom (synchronous) or YouTube (asynchronous). Links are typically updated within a day of the lecture.
