Some quotes from participants of the live Virtual Conference:

“The presentations during this conference expanded my knowledge of the difference facets of palliative care that interact with my roles within Hospice. I will be better prepared to support my patients and my colleagues daily.”

“This was so eye opening…we have so much to do with regards to educating our patients and practitioners to make better decisions about interventions and treatments.”

“Have already started using the data on prognosis to help with informed decisions. Going to highly encourage as many healthcare professionals view this presentation as possible over the next 3 months.”

“Very enjoyable and engaging. I wish we had a member of our finance team in the room for this one – will encourage them to watch the recorded session when it is posted.”

“This was an extremely valuable presentation for me as our organization is in the process of getting a palliative care program off the ground. There were elements in the presentation that I was familiar but overall this really pulled it all together for me. I am also glad our administration was present to hear about the challenges these programs can face.”
