Lunch ‘N Learns


Our lunch and learn sessions are offered monthly (except in the summer months) and are open to any health care provider involved in the delivery of hospice palliative care.

Each lunch and learn session features a guest speaker presentation focused on a topic relevant to HPC. Participants can expect to learn about a variety of approaches, management strategies, tools and resources, while enjoying a light lunch.
