Minnesota Network of Hospice & Palliative Care is excited to bring together a community of over 1,000 attendees representing a diverse audience of people committed to providing the best possible care for individuals facing serious illness or the end of life. Join colleagues to hear nationally recognized speakers, learn from experts in the field, and connect with others in a warm, community environment.
2020 is a milestone year for the organization as we celebrate our 40th anniversary, and we look forward to honoring our history throughout the conference. We are thrilled to be hosting this year’s event in downtown Saint Paul, where the organization’s first national conference was held in 1983 at The Saint Paul Hotel. Just as it is a time to celebrate our past, it is also a time for growth and change as we build for our future. Over the years this event has become the largest conference of its kind in the region. We are excited to host the 2020 event in a new venue, the Saint Paul RiverCentre, to meet the growing needs of the event and our attendees. We look forward to seeing you there!
Re-imagining How We Die: New Innovations in End-of-Life Care
MNHPC is grateful for our eight year partnership with the University School of Nursing Densford Center. They have made the pre-conference possible through the generous support of the Florence Schorske Wald Lectureship.
Florence Schorske Wald, former nurse and Dean of Yale School of Nursing, was a pioneer in the hospice movement. She led the founding of Connecticut Hospice, the first hospice program in the United States. The Wald lectureship was established by Derry Ann Moritz and Charles Shepard with the intentions of “providing a public forum for hearing a noted scholar in the area of palliative care/hospice/end-of-life care, and for drawing together faculty and care providers throughout the community to reflect on the care of persons who are dying.”
The deepest discounts on conference registration will be available for MNHPC members Nov. 29, 2019 – Jan. 20, 2020. Members who register during this time will be able to take advantage of 2019 rates for the 2020 event. This is a great option for organizations or individuals who:
– Come every year;
– Know the content will be great and don’t need to see the agenda before signing up;
– Have information ready for all attendees from their organization early
