The Virginia Association for Hospice and Palliative Care is proud to announce it has signed a preferred vendor agreement with Integriti3D for organization subscriptions to the Hospice Governance Academy. VAHPC members are now eligible for special members-only rates for the Hospice Governance Academy and Hospice Governance Academy PLUS, online learning platforms to support high-impact governance.

 The Hospice Governance Academy was designed for busy hospice chief executives and board members who want an easy and consistent way to onboard and develop a strong board of directors.

 “VAHPC members and Integriti3D share the same commitment to improve upon current best practices and provide the highest quality hospice care,” said Bill Musick, President of Integriti3D and creator of the Hospice Governance Academy.  “With Hospice Governance Academy as a foundation, your board deliberations can go broader and deeper, allowing your board to reach its full potential as a strategic asset. It’s also a great way to engage boards during times when in-person meetings are restricted.”

The Hospice Governance Academy provides on-demand on-line modules focused on high-performing boards, hospice and palliative care trends and strategy, and the hospice board’s role in setting the tone at the top for compliance, ethics and integrity.

VAHPC members are welcome to set up a demonstration video call or trial subscription by contacting Bill Musick at [email protected] or (888) 942-0405.  For further information about the Hospice Governance Academy, go to the VAHPC Member Welcome page.
