Speaker Call For Presentations

We invite you to be part of Colorado’s premier Hospice and Palliative Care conferences.

HPCAR is calling for submission of presentation proposals. This will be a competitive process. Abstracts will be evaluated on their relevance to practice, cohesiveness with overall conference theme and appropriateness for the target audience. While all abstracts may not be accepted for this combined convention, they may be considered for another aspect of HPCAR educational programming for the year.

Presentations should reflect the general theme of the convention. Topics of interest include leadership, vision, quality management, occurrence reporting, resolution process, personnel qualifications, financial management, ethics in healthcare, needs of the fragile/ill, wound care, behavior management, staff training, recruiting & retention, brain health, hospice, bereavement, private pay agency issues, and marketing strategies. These are suggestion and not meant to limit submissions in any way. All breakout sessions are one hour in length. If the presentation takes 2-4 hours to complete, it may be considered for a pre-conference workshop. Submit a separate proposal form for each presentation. Absolutely no commercial sales or marketing presentations of any kind will be permitted.

Workshops that offer concrete tools and techniques, useful research results or direct applications are preferred. We strongly favor workshops that utilize hands-on, experiential learning over “PowerPoint recitations.” We encourage participation from all hospice and palliative care clinical disciplines as well as academics and educators; long-term care, public health, senior service, mental health, and other professionals; consumer-based groups and vendors.
