What’s New For 2016?
You asked for it…so we’re doing it!
Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) and The Hospital for Sick Children are proud to be working together this year to host the first provincial Pediatric Palliative Care Symposium on Wednesday April 20th, 2016. This all-day event will immediately follow the HPCO annual conference, but will take place onsite at the Hospital for Sick Children, at 555 University Avenue, in Toronto.
The day will consist of lectures from internationally renowned experts, panel discussions, poster exhibits, and hands-on workshops. Symposium participants will be exposed to clinical teaching, recent research findings, ethical debates and a chance to network with clinicians, researchers, volunteers and engaged family members from across Ontario. We hope you can join us!
