2020 Alberta Hospice Palliative Care Association Roadshow

AHPCA Roadshow 2020 Postponed to Spring 2021


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AHPCA Board and staff have made the decision to postpone the 2020 AHPCA Roadshow until Spring 2021. The Roadshow was scheduled to run from April 29, 2020 to May 13, 2020 in five locations around Alberta.

In consultation with our five community hosts, in 2021 the AHPCA Roadshow will visit the same locations: High River, Rocky Mountain House, Cochrane, Cold Lake and Westlock. Thank you to our hosts, High River District Health Care Foundation, High River General Hospital, Compassionate Care Society, Cochrane & Area Hospice Society, Cold Lake Palliative Care Society and Westlock & District Palliative Care Society, for their understanding and flexibility during these unusual circumstances.

AHPCA is very grateful to our Roadshow presenters, Blair Collins and Darrin Parkin, for working with us to create a solution to this situation.

We hope that you will consider joining us next spring. New dates for all locations will be announced soon and registration will open again in early 2021. Refunds for Roadshow 2020 registration fees will be made within the coming weeks.

Adversity calls for creative measures. Right now, our team is working on bringing you some timely content in our upcoming Virtual Roadshows this spring. Stay tuned for details!

We will get through this difficult season. Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay connected.

WHAT is the Roadshow?

It’s a series of full-day educational workshops developed in response to an identified need for palliative care training and development throughout rural Alberta.

The benefits of the AHPCA Roadshow include community building and strengthening through networking, and increased knowledge and skills about issues related to hospice palliative care and other associated fields.

WHO attends the Roadshow?

The AHPCA Roadshow participants include multi-agency professionals, such as nurses, social workers, teachers, complementary therapists, and health care administrators. You’ll also find volunteers, caregivers, patients, families, and interested community members in the Roadshow audiences. Over 3,000 Albertans have attended the AHPCA Roadshow in the past 9 years.
