Please E-Sign Our Petition! Support HPCAR's License Plate Initiative

Voice your support for HPCAR's license plate initiative! We need your help to expand the awareness of and resources for hospice and palliative care in Colorado.

The Colorado Center for Hospice & Palliative Care (COCHPC), a 501c3 affiliate of the Hospice & Palliative Care Association of the Rockies, is running a bill in 2019 to bring a special group hospice and palliative care license plate option to adults with registered vehicles in Colorado.

Your signature of support will result in a license plate option to raise money to support hospice and palliative care programs throughout Colorado. Specifically, we will add additional resources and education programs for hospice and palliative care organizations and for consumers; promote the benefits of and provide information on hospice and palliative care to Colorado communities.

Three thousand (3,000) signatures are required by the Department of Revenue) and without these signatures, and your help, we are unable to submit an application or run a bill.

We hope you will join us in this effort to bring more resources and education to consumers utilizing hospice and palliative care throughout our communities.

Call For Presentations For HCAC/HPCAR's 2019 Conference Now Open
May 15-17.

Submit your proposal before the Nov. 16 deadline!


It’s time to submit a proposal to share your insight, experiences and innovative ideas with the attendees at next year’s HCAC/HPCAR 2019 Conference in May 2019. The 2019 conference will be attended by hundreds of provider agencies in Colorado, Wyoming and adjacent states.

It’s a competitive process, so be sure to detail your presentation’s relevance to practice and the home care, hospice provider audiences.

We are seeking:

  • Engaging keynote presenters who can enlighten our provider members in a time of great industry change.
  • Breakout presenters addressing:
    • Private pay issues
    • Technology
    • Non-Medical issues
    • Regulatory and compliance
    • NEW FOR 2019: A one-day therapy track addressing the special needs of physical therapists and others practicing in a home-health setting
  • Pre-conference proposals for Wednesday afternoon. Pre-conference sessions typically each cover four hours and so are especially good for topics requiring a “deeper dive” in a workshop-style format. They require separate attendee registration.

Other general 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.

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.

Note: 

  • 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.”
  • Three learning objectives must be provided.
  • 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.

The deadline for session proposal submissions is November 16, 2018. Please complete all the requested information on the Call for Presentations form and clearly describe your session content.

The education schedule will be announced on or near January 1, 2019.

Submit Your Proposal Today!
