The Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice, Interior Health, and UBC CPD are proud to announce the 2nd iteration of this conference for healthcare providers involved in long-term residential care. We have moved down the mountain this year to the Predator Ridge Resort, and we encourage attendees to take a mini holiday with family to enjoy the facilities during the evenings and breaks.

This year we will continue to develop an agenda focusing on multidisciplinary care  while providing clinically relevant presentations with engaging speakers. We have great suggestions from last year’s conference attendees and to fit it all in we are adding Sunday so it will be a 2.5 day conference!
