What You Said About the Last Conference

A selection of comments by this year’s attendees.

“Thank you for all of the work to put on a wonderful conference.”

“I attended last year and really enjoyed it so I planned to go again this year. I’ll be back next year!”

“You always put on a local, wonderful program.”

“Great job and thanks to those involved in planning and carrying out this wonderful program.”

“Will come back next year”

“I think this conference was very informative with many useful takeaways and reinforced the importance of palliative care.”

“As a new Palliative care nurse 5 years ago, I have learned so much through by attending these conferences every year.. I hope they continue as I believe it really keeps PC in the forefront in the community. It is also wonderful to see more and more HCP’s from the community attend and who are finally understanding what PC is. Maybe fundraising needs to happen if costs is an issue to keep the conference going.”
