HPCO2020: Leading by Example in a Team Based World is Virtual!

Thank you for your patience while we transitioned HPCO2020: Leading by Example in a Team Based World, taking place April 27 – 29, 2020. Our virtual conference will feature 40 workshops, 19 oral papers, and two keynotes for your consideration. This is a smaller program than usual but in keeping with recent events and online capacity.

The Registration Fee has been reduced to $250. For those who already paid the full conference fee, we have refunded you the difference. 



Individuals that have registered for the 3rd Biennial Ontario Paediatric Palliative Care Symposium have received a full refund.

Hospices and individuals who registered for the June Callwood Awards on Sunday, April 26th have received a full refund, and will be notified in the future of the in-person awards gala date.

For non-members, the reduced fee for the virtual conference does not include membership in HPCO.

During this time of crisis, workshop presenters may be called to front line healthcare duties. If a session presenter is called to duty and must cancel their session, HPCO will notify all those registered for the presentation via email.


For all those registered prior to March 30, 2020, a full refund was available until Friday, April 17, 2020. All registrants were notified of the refund available. Registrations on or after April 1 are non-refundable.

Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) reserves the right to cancel the virtual program due to insufficient registrations and will be responsible for refunding the registration fee.
