Shifting Sands: Providing Home and Community Based Hospice and Palliative Care

Sixth Annual Midwinter Conference
February 21, 2020

Fort Worth, Texas

This one-day Midwinter seminar designed in case study format is relevant for providers in all disciplines. Presentations will focus on clinical and home-based challenges care providers face when using concurrent care and telemedicine to coordinate and manage complex medical care needs - what worked or did not, and what was learned from each particularly challenging case.

An expert panel will provide reflection following both morning and afternoon case presentations, and participants also will be actively involved in follow-up discussions.  The conference seeks to provide participants with opportunities to pose questions, engage in discussion, and network with pediatric palliative care experts and providers throughout the country. We invite you to participate, learn, and make connections with PPC providers throughout Texas and beyond.

He earned his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He completed his residency at the University of Colorado, Denver.
