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.

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.
