The Fine Art & Science of Pain and Palliative Care Conference 2019

November 11, 2019 @ 7:30 am 4:30 pm

Please join us for this excellent home grown Queens Medical Center conference.

Meeting patients’ pain and palliative care needs demands a balance of the best of the art and science of caring. Challenges such as safely and effectively treating pain and maintaining resilience and presence can leave one with the feeling of staring at a blank canvas. This conference has gathered a multi-talented faculty to share the state of both the art and the science of pain management and palliative care, to inspire you with their creative presentations, and take you from that blank canvas to a larger palate of care options to create your masterpiece in meeting these vital patient needs.

This conference has broad appeal to physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other healthcare professionals.
