Changing Minds

Te Omanga Hospice and local Residential Care facilities join together biannually to present the well-respected Changing Minds Conference.

The focus of our 2018 conference was on connecting the links for an improved palliative care experience. The conference programme and key themes included:

  • Positive outcomes for the older person living with frailty
  • Making the move: transition into residential care
  • Reality for families: how to navigate the complexities
  • Management of chronic pain in the older person
  • Maintaining empathy in a challenging sector.

We’d like to thank everyone who made our conference such a success. A special thank you to our keynote speakers:

  • Jo Hockley RN, PhD, MSc, SCM, OBE (University of Edinburgh)
  • Dr Robin Youngson (University of Auckland) International leader in Compassionate Healthcare.
