ALLIANCE FOR EXCELLENCE IN HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE NURSING 2011 ANNUAL REPORT Through the generous support of our corporate partner, Purdue Pharma, the Alliance held its 4th annual summit in June, 2011 and as before it was very successful. Our focus for 2011 was very different. Instead of bringing in leaders from other specialty nursing organizations, we invited 5 foundation leaders along with Diane Meier, MD who provided a backdrop of where palliative care is today. We then introduced them to the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation’s vision to establish a nursing leadership institute. The second day of the summit was devoted to developing messaging under the direction of a consulting public relations firm. Board of Trustee members constructed and practiced providing responses to typical questions in preparation to addressing various stakeholders when communicating who we are and what we do. The four board meetings that the Alliance held in 2011 were productive in addressing the common issues noted by the three sister organizations. The Alliance is committed to providing support to each other as we seek to meet the needs of our constituency. Simultaneously, the Alliance has established a “CEO search team” that is committed to finding a successor to Judy Lentz. The Alliance is grateful to the leadership of Judy after 12 years of service and looks forward to the challenges ahead as they begin focusing on the transition of leadership and the planning of the 2012 Summit.

HOSPICE AND PALLIATIVE NURSES ASSOCIATION 2011 ANNUAL REPORT This report highlights the major achievements of HPNA in 2011 under the leadership of the Board of Directors and in collaboration with the CEO and National Staff. 25th Anniversary Celebration: Throughout the year, HPNA celebrated its 25th anniversary. The first major event was the Anniversary Dinner at the Annual Assembly in Vancouver, BC, Canada. In tandem with this event, HPNA hosted a history room with memorabilia covering its 25-year history. At the Plenary Event to highlight HPNA, the first 16 presidents of the Board of Directors of HPNA were honored. The celebrating continued to the Leadership Development weekend, where local leaders had the opportunity to learn more about HPNA’s history and was woven into our 5th Clinical Practice Forum held in Pittsburgh, PA. And finally, the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Nursing launched a new cover to honor the anniversary and published a supplement to highlight the history of palliative nursing over the past 25 years. 2011 Award Recipients: HPNA Leading the Way Award - Madalon O’Rawe Amenta, PhD, MN, RN HPNA Distinguished Career Achievement Award - Patricia Murphy, PhD, APN, FAAN, FPCN HPNA Distinguished Researcher - Neville E.

Board members were asked to begin the process at the April Board meeting, when they generated a list of goals and strategies for work in education and public policy. This process was repeated in the July Board meeting, with a focus on research and leadership development. At the July Leadership Development Weekend, local leaders in attendance were asked to contribute to this process, generating a list of strengths and concerns for the Board to consider. In addition, the 2011 full membership survey provided additional data points for review. Using all this information, the Board created a strategic plan that focuses on furthering the mission of HPNA while building on its foundation of excellence. In focusing on the pillars of our mission, the following activities are highlighted:

2011 ANNUAL REPORT Highlights and Accomplishments • A total of 3,976 hospice and palliative care health professionals achieved initial certification or renewed their certification in 2011, bringing the total number of certificants to over 18,000. • New Role Delineation Studies for the APRN and RN examinations were completed in the spring. • The pediatric registered nurse exam was launched in March, with 47 first time test takers. The passing rate was 82%. A total number of 78 RNs completed the exam in 2011. • The AAHPM/HPNA Annual Assembly in the Vancouver was well attended by nearly 2000 hospice and palliative care professionals. The NBCHPN® certification recognition luncheon was also well attended and appreciated. Karen Kehl, PhD, RN, ACHPN® from the University of Wisconsin, School of Nursing was the keynote speaker. Her presentation unveiled preliminary data on outcomes related to the differences in practices between certified and non-certified nursing personnel. Hopefully, this will be the first of many studies that will demonstrate the benefits of certification. 2011 Award Recipients • M. Michelle Porthouse, NP-C, ACHPN® of Fredericksburg, VA was the 2011 recipient of the Advanced Practice Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse of the Year Award (ACHPN®). • Debi Bach Clancy, BSN, RN, CHPN® of Walnut Creek, CA was the 2011 recipient of the Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse of the Year Award (CHPN®). • Dana Goodwin, CHPNA® of Temple, TX was the 2011 recipient of the Certified Hospice and Palliative Nursing Assistant of the Year Award (CHPNA®). • York Hospital WellSpan Health of York, PA was the recipient of the NBCHPN® 2011 Employer of the Year Award. Board of Directors Updates • In March, significant decisions were made to streamline the work of the Board of Directors by separating it from the work of the examination development committees, thus increasing efficiency of both groups and time utilization. • The Hospice and Palliative Accrual for Recertification (HPAR) process has been approved as an option for the renewal of certification for the Certified Hospice and Palliative Licensed Nurse (CHPLN®). • The Board also approved a Role Delineation Study survey for professionals caring for individuals experiencing perinatal loss to explore the possibility of developing a national certification exam for those professionals. • The Board retreat took place in Chicago, where Les Wallace instructed the Board on 21st Century Leadership. His insights were extremely helpful as the Board adapts to

its new structure. The implications and implementation of the definition of continuing competence will be an ongoing part of the strategic initiatives of NBCHPN®. Strategic planning for 2012-2015 took place in the Fall Board meeting with Michela Perrone, Board consultant. Survey results from certificants were perused and integrated into the vision for the future.

Partnership Activities • At the American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS) meeting in San Antonio in March, Bette Case DiLeonardi and Barbara Schmal presented the work product of the NBCHPN® Continuing Competence Task Force, which crafted a definition for use in application for various fields of nursing practice. The paper is entitled “Statement on Continuing Competence for Nursing: A Call to Action.” The definition was embraced and endorsed by American Board of Nursing Specialties (ABNS), Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC), American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and Council of Graduate Education for Administration in Nursing (CGEAN). The implications of this definition related to certification will be an ongoing part of the NBCHPN® board discussions and strategic planning in the years to come. Dr. DiLeonardi, Barbara Schmal, and Denise Stahl will be presenting on this topic at the 2012 AAHPM/HPNA Annual Assembly. HPNA Participation • The NBCHPN® president attended HPNA meetings to maintain communication and consistency. Topics that were discussed included representation at various national meetings: National Quality Forum, National Consensus Project (NCP), the Institute of Medicine (IOM) January Think Tank, and AARP meetings. The HPNA leadership weekend/ retreat in mid-year was the beginning for their strategic planning, and an opportunity to uplift and encourage local leaders from across the nation. Alliance Activities • NBCHPN® continues to collaborate in the work of the Alliance for Excellence in Hospice and Palliative Nursing to speak with a unified voice to issues related to hospice and palliative nursing. Media messaging training took place in July.
