CHAPCA Member Annual Award Nominations

Each year, the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association (CHAPCA) recognizes two outstanding individuals and one program for their contributions to hospice.  We need your help to identify potential recipients of these very prestigious awards.

The Pierre Salmon Award recognizes an individual who has 1) made a significant contribution to hospice and/or palliative care in California or Nevada; 2) promoted the growth and availability of hospice and/or palliative care; and 3) embodies the core values of hospice.

The Gift of the Heart Award honors an individual who has been a hospice volunteer for a minimum of three years. Individuals may be nominated either for one unique project they developed and implemented or for a history of ongoing dedicated service to hospice. Special attention will be given to nominees who have increased community participation in hospice.

The Outstanding Program Achievement Award honors a program or agency that has created and implemented an innovative hospice and/or palliative care program that raises the standard for palliative and end-of-life care; serves as a model for the profession; or creates an awareness of the importance of excellence in serving patients near the end-of-life.

Awards will be presented during the Annual Meeting at the 2021 Annual Conference and Exposition on March 25, 2022.

We invite you to nominate an individual, agency or program to receive one of these prestigious awards.
