HPCAI Education and Events

Providing those in the hospice community with valuable information and education is one of HPCAI's main priorities. HPCAI is the premier source of education for hospices in Iowa, providing hospice and palliative care professionals and agencies the necessary information and tools needed to thrive in an ever-changing and ever-challenging environment. In order to ensure members receive the highest quality education, HPCAI hosts several education programs throughout the year. These programs range from webinars about the latest hospice rules and regulations, to hands-on programs at the HPCAI offices in Des Moines. These programs feature many accredited and well-known speakers who share their insight and knowledge with those in attendance. Many of the educational opportunities offered also count toward nursing CEUs and various certifications.  

HPCAI strives to provide home care agencies with engaging, current and informative education opportunities that truly benefit those in the hospice community. Each year, HPCAI updates and adds new education opportunities for members based on input from the Education Committee and feedback from the Board of Directors and members. All education offerings are announced to members in the HPCAI Update newsletter and posted on the website. Education programs are generally available to all hospice and palliative care providers, though HPCAI members receive substantial discounts.
