AAHPM Week in Review: December 3-7

There are a limited number of spots available for The National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care’s complimentary webinar on Mon., Dec. 17, 2:30 – 4 pm (ET) on the newly published National Consensus Project’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, 4th ed. Registration closes December 14.

The AAHPM Executive Committee met this week and approved the 2019 Budget and several policies, and also received update reports on several ongoing projects (quality grants, PCHETA, HPM Match).

Individuals with expertise in measure development and testing methodologies for patients with serious illness are encouraged to apply. Deadline to apply is January 4.

AAHPM has been in communication with the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) about the member communications on Connect and Twitter regarding the recent ABIM HPM Exam. ABIM has stressed to us that they are taking this matter very seriously and welcomes your direct feedback using this email address, rbaronmd@abim.org.
