Conference Details

MNHPC is pleased to announce that our annual conference will return in 2021 with the theme, “The Best Care Possible.”

Our theme provides a framework for addressing important issues in serious illness and end-of-life care, including topics such as pain and symptom management, regulatory issues, and whole person care. This year’s theme also provides an opportunity to address issues that have come to the forefront in the past year, including caring for patients during a global pandemic and striving for equity in health care for all patients in all phases of life.

To ensure the health and safety of participants, this year’s conference will be presented virtually, but it will still be the same high quality continuing education experience that attendees have come to expect from MNHPC conferences. Likewise, it will be an opportunity to connect with others in the serious illness and end-of-life care community in new and exciting ways.

Congrats to our first 100 registrants who will receive a copy of "That Good Night"!

That Good Night: Life and Medicine in the Eleventh Hour is a 2019 memoir written by Dr. Sunita Puri, who chronicles her experiences with helping terminally-ill patients and their family members make end-of-life decisions. Throughout the span of 13 chapters, Dr. Puri recounts clinical encounters involving both patients and professional colleagues, stories of her upbringing, and personal reflections about the field of palliative medicine.
