Week in Review: April 12-16, 2021

Annual Assembly event platform is still available only until May 20 to those who had previously registered to attend.

Continuing education and MOC credits are available for physicians, nurses, social workers, and pharmacists – claim them by May 31.

AAHPM joined specialty society partners in sending a letter to CMS urging greater transparency in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). In this communication organized by the AMA, the signatories express concerns that quality measure benchmarks have not been released in a timely or consistent manner and request close to real-time release of cost measure targets and patient attribution information.

The National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care released a new Impact Report highlighting efforts from the past year. The 13 member organizations, including AAHPM, worked together to grow support for community-based palliative care, coordinate COVID-19 education, address disparities in care, establish a National Pediatric Palliative Care Task Force, engage stakeholders to advance new quality measures, and improve public messaging.

Join AAHPM and SWHPN on April 29 from 3-4 pm ET for a free webinar, Racism in Healthcare & Strategies for Equity in Hospice and Palliative Care presented by Eunju Lee, LCSW APHSW-C, and David L. Tran, MD. This webinar is part of each organization’s commitment to providing education and resources that advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. Registration required.
