Palliative Education & Research Day Objectives


At the end of the conference, through concurrent sessions participants will be able to:

  • Distinguish the mechanisms of physical, emotional, spiritual and social distress;

  • Review methods of controlling symptoms of life-limiting disease;

  • Describe patient and family-centered care and support for the inter-professional approach.


In addition, participants will be able to identify how to:

  • Create a supportive environment to enhance staff wellness;

  • And examine new research findings, both in progress and completed.

2020 Theme: Kaleidoscope of Diversity: 

Honoring Individuality in Palliative Care


“Ensuring that the needs and wishes of each person with a life-limiting illness and their family are understood”

The population we serve is diverse.  Our ability to recognize our implicit biases towards race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and other stereotypes influences: patient-provider interactions; medical decision making; and individual interpretations of life, death, dying and bereavement.

Increasing our understanding of a person’s unique palliative care journey contributes to a person and family centered approach to care throughout their illness trajectory. 

Through trust, knowledge, communication, compassionate care and awareness of social, cultural and individual factors, health care providers can create an environment that respects, values and embraces diversity.

Join us as we explore current practices and evidence based approaches for delivering palliative and end-of-life care services to all people with a life-limiting illness and their families, including the vulnerable and underserved.
