Welcome to the HPCFM 2019 Call for Proposals

Thank you for your interest in presenting a workshop at the 2019 HPCFM Annual Education Conference. Your responses to this Call for Proposals will help the Conference Planning Committee to evaluate your proposal. 
By submitting a workshop proposal, the applicant is aware of his/her obligations as a presenter.
To be considered, proposals must be submitted online using the application that follows.  If submitting more than one proposal, you must submit a separate application for each workshop.  Once started, the CFP application must be completed in its entirety.  If you close the application before completion, you will have to start again.
Proposals will be reviewed by HPCFM Conference Planning Committee - a group of hospice and palliative care professionals.  Reviewers will evaluate the proposals using the following guidelines:
  • Practical application of material.
  • Relevance to the hospice and end-of-life care industries.
  • Timely or innovative topics.
  • Clearly identified objectives.
  • Presentation level (preference will be given to intermediate and advanced level topics).
  • Expertise of presenter(s).
  • Potential of interest to audience.
All proposals must be free of commercial bias and references to commercial products or services.  All selected presenters are required to disclose the existence of any vested interest with a sponsor of any commercial product or service that is directly or indirectly related to the educational presentation.

A few tips before you get started:
  • The length of the workshop is 75 minutes, including any time allocated for questions.
  • The maximum number of presenters per workshop is two; each proposal must designate only one primary presenter.
  • Workshop proposals must include at least 3 measurable objectives and no more than 5 measurable objectives.
  • Workshops are presented voluntarily.  Presenters attend the conference on the day of the presentation without cost. Additional conference days are available to speakers at a discounted rate. Per diem expenses, travel or hotel are not included.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is Friday, May 31st, 2019.
Please contact Betsy Watt at HPCFM, bwatt@hospicefed.org if you need more information.
Thanks again for submitting a proposal for the 2019 HPCFM Education Conference
