Your Membership significantly enhances the overall power of the hospice palliative care movement.
Your voice helps AHPCA speak out, so please join today!
AHPCA works towards improving quality of life and raising awareness of palliative and end of life issues in many different ways:
- AHPCA provides and maintains Alberta’s only Online Palliative Care Resource Directory
- Active letter writing, networking, phone calls and hard work by our Board, has set the stage for AHPCA to influence the palliative care planning process.
- Our members have told us that rural Alberta is often left out of palliative care awareness and educational training. We are committed to helping fill this gap by organizing Rural Roadshow workshops throughout Alberta.
- AHPCA has met with both Provincial and Federal Advisory Committees, and we have submitted several reports and recommendations regarding end of life care.
- AHPCA has organized radio and newspaper interviews throughout Alberta, including province-wide CBC Radio, which promote quality provincial end of life care.
As an Alberta wide association, our task is to represent our members and all Albertans, including patients and their families, professionals and volunteers. In our efforts to educate and to be inclusive, we have been listening and talking to members and others across the province. Your views are important and your membership has impact and gives us legitimacy.
