Thank you for your ongoing support of the Oregon Hospice & Palliative Care Association.  Your membership enables us to meet the continuing challenges we face together. You may have noticed a couple of changes this year:

  • We changed our name this past winter to include “Palliative Care” in our mission and outreach.
  • We have changed our dues structure to be based on hospice “admissions” rather than “patient deaths” in the previous year. 

Palliative care is a growing component in the end-of-life care continuum.  Many hospice providers in Oregon already have or are contemplating adding this service—or they are affiliating with a palliative care provider.  The Oregon Hospice & Palliative Care Association has a goal of serving all end-of-life providers, including those who provide palliative care services.  The change in dues structure aligns us with other state hospice and palliative care associations around the country and reflects our mission to assist hospice and palliative care programs in serving  all their patients, even those who end up being “discharged alive”.

The past couple of years have brought a record number of regulatory changes in hospice.  We continue to face the challenges of payment reform, ever-increasing scrutiny by the MACs, continued changes and expansion in quality reporting requirements as well as all of the “usual” challenges in providing care for dying Oregonians and their families.  This past winter I was delighted to have been approved to become a member of NHPCO’s Regulatory Committee, which meets by conference call and in person to review and discuss proposed regulations.  It is my goal to be well informed about proposed regulatory changes and issues—info which I can then pass along to our members.

These are services and benefits you receive as a member of the Oregon Hospice & Palliative Care Association.  Thank you for your many contributions to people in our state. 

Best regards,

Barb Hansen, MA, RN, CWON, CEO
