Why “24 In ’24” for our 2024 theme?

Well, the conference platform will be open 24 hours a day during those conference dates in 2024, or ’24! So we’re 24 In ’24 JUST FOR YOU!

Want some other fun facts about the number 24? How about this: There are 24 elements that make up the human body. Who knew!?

But even better is this: The number 24 is about aligning your heart with your actions, finding a sense of balance and peace, and enjoying the beauty of life. It’s a hugely spiritual number and one that encourages high vibrations, awareness, and trust in the beautiful journey ahead.

New in ‘24: General Practitioner: Doing End of Life Better Track

We are excited to announce a new track at this year’s International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care (IAAHPC) Annual Conference, specifically designed for general practice and emergency veterinarians. This track aims to equip you with essential skills and knowledge to enhance end-of-life patient care.

Our GP track offers 14 hours of RACE-approved (pending) continuing education focused on integrating compassionate and comprehensive palliative care into your practice. Highlights include lectures from pain management expert Dr. Robin Downing, veterinary hospice pioneer Dr. Mary Gardner, and internal medicine specialist Lawren Durocher-Babek. Featured lectures include:

  • Pain is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional: Comprehensive, Multimodal Pain Relief
  • Hospice Care for Cancer of the Skeletal System
  • Taking The Pain Out Of Diabetes – Developing A Palliative Care Approach For Diabetics At The End Of Life

Whether you’re looking to refine your approach to chronic pain management, improve client communication, or bolster your own well-being as a caregiver, this conference offers invaluable resources to help you “do end-of-life care better” for your patients and their families.
