Why join AHPCA?

Your membership significantly enhances the overall power of the hospice palliative care movement!

AHPCA promotes and supports comprehensive and quality hospice palliative care for all Albertans in many different ways:

  • AHPCA provides and maintains Alberta’s only online palliative care Resource Directory of province-wide hospice palliative care services
  • AHPCA highlights news and hospice palliative care events through our members-only newsletter, as well as social media and website
  • In response to member feedback that rural Alberta is often left out of palliative care awareness and educational training, we developed the AHPCA Roadshow that has brought education to over 3,000 Albertans in rural locations over the past ten years.
  • AHPCA liaises with the provincial and federal governments and makes recommendations.

As the provincial hospice palliative care association, our task is to represent our members and all Albertans, including patients and their families, professionals and volunteers. In our efforts to educate and to be inclusive, we have been listening and talking to members and others across the province. Your views are important and your membership has impact and gives us legitimacy.

Joint associate status & provincial membership allows for the pooling of resources to further the overall mandate and support the development and implementation of programs/services across the country. Pooling of resources also minimizes duplication.
