NSMHPCN Education Opportunities

The North Simcoe Muskoka Hospice Palliative Care Network is committed to the development of quality hospice palliative care wherever the client chooses to live and die. To support health care providers, we offer a variety of conferences, courses, workshops and presentations in communities across North Simcoe Muskoka.

We also want to meet the needs of individuals and family caregivers for information and education about services available and what they might need to know to make living with a life-threatening illness easier. We are happy to respond to individual inquiries and requests for information sessions.

In addition to the formal programs offered above, we encourage you to continue your education through a series of monthly webinars. If you would like to receive our monthly educational updates directly to your inbox you can register here.
