Welcome to Lake Superior Hospice
On October 21 and 22, 2014, Lake Superior Hospice and Lake Superior Palliative Medicine will be hosting its Second Annual Upper Great Lakes Palliative Care and Hospice Conference, “A Patient’s Right to Quality Care… Providing Care Patients Desire and Deserve.” The conference will be held on the campus of Northern Michigan University in the University Center. The conference will grow this year to two days and features keynote presentations, concurrent sessions, and preconference, interactive workshops. On the evening of October 21st, we will be offering a presentation to the conference attendees and the greater community to discuss what truly can be represented in an advance care plan that is meaningful and individualized. Other topics to be presented at the conference will include ethical dilemmas, end of life Veterans programs in the U.P., symptom management skills, evidence based advance care planning methods, coping with grief, and legal issues surrounding end of life care. Early bird registration is available at the rate of $100 for those who register through August 10.
