The Lifetime Achievement Award is to honour a registered nurse and/or nurse practitioner, who has made outstanding contributions to Hospice Palliative Care (HPC) Nursing and the HPC nursing group during the course of their nursing career.

The Leadership Award is to honour a nurse who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership through advocacy for high quality and safe hospice palliative care, the generation and application of related knowledge and research, and the establishment of collegial partnerships, and/or contributions to the professional development of others through education, consultation, leadership, and mentorship.
