The conference will help hospice and palliative care professionals improve their care during “transitions” – the challenging times when providing excellent continuity, communication, continuing assessment and quality care are most critical yet sometimes go awry.

The 2019 Virtual Conference is one of the most economical and convenient ways to bring high quality education to your team or your office without the expenses associated with a traditional “out of town” conference. Ideal offering for an individual, a team, or an entire organization.

Overcoming the Challenges of Community-Based Palliative Care will feature:
• Live streaming plenary speakers
• Webinar-based concurrent sessions
• Video Library
• Unique opportunities for interaction
• CE/CME credit for nurses and physicians (during the live event only)
• Unlimited on-demand access for 3 months after the live event
