HPCO2024: Conference Summary

Our annual Conference, HPCO2024, occurred on June 9-11, 2024.  This sold-out event welcomed over 800 delegates from across Ontario.  We also welcomed delegates from across Canada and from the United Kingdom.

The 2024 conference theme was Palliative Care Everywhere. Building on the 2023 conference theme of Now is the Time, Palliative Care Everywhere underscores the importance of a palliative approach to care being available in all settings where people die. Despite the progress we have made, many people do not have equitable access to quality, integrated, patient-centred, sustainable hospice palliative care services. Whether at home, in hospice, in long-term care, in hospital, group homes, prisons, shelters, or unhoused, palliative care must be available in all settings and for all people.

The conference included three days of learning, 5 keynotes, 69 workshops, 39 oral presentations and 30 poster presentations. We also hold our Awards Gala during the conference – click the link below to read more about our winners.

This year, the Biennial Provincial Paediatric Palliative Care Symposium was held on June 12, 2024, following the HPCO Conference.
