Spring Education Day
Traditionally, critical care has focused on providing curative, life-saving care; however there are times where the focus of care becomes palliation. Providing quality end-of-life care can be challenging in the critical care setting.
The Greater Edmonton Chapter is proud to provide a full education day on palliative care in critical care. We have organized numerous speakers: Carmel Montgomery, Charlotte Pooler, Leslie LaPierre, Brandy Love, and Dr. James Downar. The education event was on May 9th, 2016. Thanks everyone who participated.
