UBC Division of Palliative Care CME Day
October 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm$50 – $140
The UBC Division of Palliative Care invites you to attend this series of 40-minute virtual presentations aim to share key messages learned from new Palliative Care initiatives in a variety of settings. These include urban emergency rooms, a rural hospice, a palliative outpatient clinic, vulnerable urban populations (including those with substance use disorders, unstable homing situations, and alternate gender identities), remote indigenous communities, and a “virtual PCU” in a community hospital. We will also have sessions on regional palliative care patient identification; starting a Nurse Practitioner service; and implementation of a COVID-19-adapted Serious Illness Conversation Guide.
Each presentation will last 20-25 minutes, followed by 15-20 minutes of open discussion. Presenters are the multidisciplinary clinicians who led these initiatives.
The event is recommended for palliative care clinicians of all disciplines, health care managers, public health specialists, and anyone else interested in the development of palliative care services in any setting or health care system.
