Palliative Nursing Webinars

In 2017, AAACN participated in the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association’s (HPNA) Palliative Nursing Summit, which sought to enhance three key areas of primary palliative care across nursing practice: (1) communication and advance care planning, (2) transitions and coordination of care, and (3) pain and symptom management.

HPNA has developed two webinars to promote understanding on the use of opioids in those with serious illness and communication techniques for use with patients and families. The webinars are available as free professional development resources for AAACN members. Simply click on title of webinar(s) below to view.
