The Regional Conference is designed for all roles and disciplines involved in the provision of hospice palliative care – caregivers, volunteers, social workers, spiritual care, PSWs, RN/RPN, NP, MD, management, and anyone who supports them.

This year, our theme of “Connection and Community in Hospice Palliative Care: Where Do We Grow From Here” looks at how those providing hospice palliative care can enhance the grief and bereavement experience of patients and families.  In addition to enhancing skills and practice, attendees of the conference will come away inspired and refreshed in growing from their own grief and bereavement.
