Risk Evaluation

& Mitigation Toolkit (REM)

This toolkit takes a proactive "partnering" approach to opioid safety and assumes that patients and families want to assure that medications are used safely.

The purpose of this toolkit is to help those who work with hospice patients and their family members address the issue of substance abuse and diversion.

Welcome to Virginia Association for Hospices & Palliative Care (VAHPC)

The Virginia Association for Hospices and Palliative Care advocates for quality care for all persons with life limiting illnesses. 
VAHPC  promotes hospice and palliative care education and ethical practices, and serves as a  united voice and resource for its members.

Back to

 the Basics:

 Hospice Documentation  under the Microscope

Hospice providers know that documentation is the key to

timely and appropriate reimbursement. 

VAHPC is offering a hands' on, interactive workshop that will provide hospice interdisciplinary team members the opportunity to

re-learn or refresh what they know about the basics, with a focus on

documenting, eligibility

and decline.

We can help you get it right the first time

and avoid frustrating delays in payment

Scheduled for

October 20, 2016

This all-day event

will take place at the

Westerre Conference Center

The Hospice Support Fund, based in Nashville and using a mail processing center in Merrifield, VA has been soliciting by mail in several areas in Virginia requesting donations "to bring end of life home hospice care to all Americans". This organization is not affiliated with the Virginia Association for Hospices & Palliative Care, nor is it associated with any licensed hospice in Virginia. As far as we can determine no hospice nor hospice patient has benefited from this  organization.
