Welcome to the inaugural Palliative Care Winter Conference 2023! This year, we bring you a bigger and better conference, as a result of the collaboration between the Northern Ontario School of Medicine NOSM-SPC and the NNPCN-PCIEF Nipissing sub-region.
While this conference is virtual, we will be setting up hub sites (connected by OTN and WebEX), in communities where registrants indicate that they would like to gather in-person with other local community members participating in the conference. Please be sure to indicate your interest in this option during your registration.
This conference welcomes international and local northern Ontario speakers who will present on recognizing burnout and post-covid PTSD, the impact of the pandemic on palliative care, the global health framework for palliative care, and the primary care approach to palliative care in northern Ontario.

Every year, the Near North Palliative Care Network organizes an open-air event to celebrate the life and memory of your loved ones. Participants have the opportunity to sponsor a butterfly and release it in honour and memory of a loved one who has passed away. The butterflies are delivered in especially tailored packages. These dark and cool conditions keep the butterflies in a comfortable resting state until the day of the release. Once the package is opened, the natural heat and light will awaken these sleeping beauties and inspire them to take flight. The event also includes musical performances, fabulous draw prizes, and a BBQ!
For a donation of $35, you get one butterfly For a donation of $100, you get four butterflies.
