Holiday Inn Toronto-Yorkdale    3450 Dufferin Street, Toronto, M6A2V1

Providing respectful and thoughtful care to our older patients and caregivers requires that we be mindful of their needs, abilities, and tolerances, as well as that of our own. We will engage you in a day of learning, discussion, and reflection to help us all practice to our best abilities while being considerate of this social interplay. Speakers and topics include:


Dr. Joel Sadavoy - Redefining Dementia Interventions and the Caregiver/Patient Dyad

Dr. John Puxty - Advance Care Planning

Valerie Spironello - Compassion Fatigue Workshop

Dr. Stella Ng - Reflective Practice

Dr. Barbara Liu - Development of an Intersectoral Framework for Senior Friendly Care (sfCare)

Debbie Daly and Dr. Jennifer Ingram - Physician-Assisted Dying


REGISTRATION FEE - $160, up to the morning of May 11 2017.

Early-bird registrations, by April 14 2017, will be entered into a draw to win a "Fitbit" fitness tracker.

We look forward to seeing you there!
