30th Annual Palliative Care Education and Research Day 

Monday, October 21, 2019 
Fantasyland Hotel in West Edmonton Mall, Edmonton, Alberta. 

Learn about palliative care needs and enhance your knowledge of the practical aspects of care and of end-of-life issues. Explore current trends, issues and research with invited guest experts and colleagues.

This year the theme will be “Caring for Caregivers”.  Join us as we explore what it means to be caregivers – both professionally and personally - and how we can approach this willing task, not only for the health and wellbeing of those we care for, but for ourselves.

In-depth workshops, concurrent sessions and posters will address all aspects of end-of-life care. Topic areas include:
  • Back to Basics: Symptom management, direct clinical care
  • Emerging Issues & Trends: innovations and research in Palliative & End of Life Care
  • Challenging clinical care needs for Palliative and End of Life patients and their families
  • Psychosocial / Spiritual & Wellness
More information about the conference can be found on the Covanent Health website.
