Our Visit with HPCA

On our first day in Cape Town, we started the day's activities with a visit to HPCA (Hospice and Palliative Care Association). This organization is like South Africa's version of NHPCO. While there we had the opportunity to have a conversation with Dr. Liz Gwyther, the organizaton's CEO and Cathy Henning, their COO. It was interesting to talk about our different models of care. We learned that we face some of the same challenges around staffing and resources. This conversation confirmed what the entire trip has been teaching us over and over again.....we have some much in common.
