2017 Conference
This year’s conference considers the diagnoses for which palliative care is appropriate, and how soon after diagnosis care should commence

The conference will discuss adoption of a comprehensive home-based medical and palliative care program for Michigan similar to California’s, and the possible forthcoming Federal legislative changes and their impact.

Devon Dabbs, co-founder of the Children’s Hospice and Palliative Care Coalition in California, will outline California's revolutionary program which provides home-based curative and palliative care without need for hospice diagnosis and at lower cost than conventional programs.

Senator Curtis Hertel Jr will talk about “Children’s healthcare and the legislative future”, reviewing anticipated changes in healthcare legislation and the impact on care in our state.

James Fahner MD will discuss the meaning and scope of pediatric palliative care.

Pediatric palliative care teams from our four leading children's hospitals will discuss their programs and best practices as a panel and with parents and patients, with speakers from Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, University of Michigan/C.S. Mott, and Beaumont Children's Hospital.

Make-a-Wish and similar charities will discuss their programs in  "Charity Corner".

Work groups will focus on Education, Advocacy, Perinatal, Respite, and Bereavement, providing participants with a chance to work on ongoing projects and brainstorm initiatives.

 An evening reception (appetizers and cash bar) will end the event with a networking opportunity nearby for those able to attend

Continuing Education certification
will be available for Nursing and Social Work
