NHNSA’s Designing the Future of Care Conference promises two days of innovation, inspiration and action. Learn how leaders in Nova Scotia as well as other jurisdictions across the country are successfully supporting domestic and international recruitment efforts; understand how barriers in the workplace are impacting mental health and absenteeism; and discover why cyber security needs to be an essential part of your operational plan.

Explore how different models of care are providing outcomes rich in person-centre experiences; hear how best practices in palliative care are impacting caregivers. Meet some of Nova Scotia’s newest collaborators with technologies that are impacting the delivery of care in the community and in long term care.

Together with thought leaders, decisions makers, researchers, innovators, doers, dreamers and difference makers you’ll hear about best practices and innovative models and solutions employed nationally and internationally, but most importantly, you will hear about solutions that are making a difference right here in our own back yard! You will be inspired to play a leading role in making this important sector change and grow.
