Please join Palliative Manitoba at its 27th Annual Provincial Conference, September 13 to 14, 2018, at the Victoria Inn Hotel and Convention Centre in Winnipeg.

This year’s conference theme is ‘Keep it Simple’. The goal is to promote conversations and provide interactive sessions that clarify the philosophy of a palliative approach to care and service provision. Delegates will have an opportunity to explore their own and others’ perceptions of palliative care, while enhancing their ability to provide quality care to individuals and their families who are facing life-limiting illnesses and bereavement. The conference will include four keynote speakers, 24 concurrent sessions, exhibition, art show and AGM.

This year the keynote speakers include award winning author and journalist Andre Picard; Director, Palliative Care McGill and Chief, Palliative Care Services, Jewish General Hospital Dr. Bernard Lapointe; Dr. Susan McClement, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Manitoba; and Dr. Mike Harlos, Medical Director, Adult and Pediatric Palliative Care Program, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
