Overall goal: to build and/or add to attendees' palliative care 'toolkits'... useful for the care of patients and their families living at the last phase of their lives, wherever they are receiving care.
Those who have attended in the past are welcome to register to attend the newly updated days. May register for one or both days... Day 1 must be attended before Day 2. The 'online pain module' provided during Day 1 must be completed prior to attending Day 2.
Prior to attending educational sessions, you need approval from your manager or supervisor if attending on scheduled work time (or if you expect to be reimbursed if attending outside of work time).Everyone will be placed on the ‘waiting list’ whilst registrations are being received. Once your registration is processed, you will receive a confirmation email.

Thank you.
