About this event

Looking to the Future: Healthcare Workers Conference gathers prospective and current nurses, PSWs, and healthcare professionals to engage with the trajectory of healthcare in Eastern Ontario.

Due to circumstances, we've postponed Looking to the Future: Healthcare Workers Conference into 2023! To stay updated on HWC 2023 and other healthcare opportunities in Eastern Ontario, sign up for our newsletter!

When: TBD 2023 March 4, & Sunday, March 5, 2023

Where: TBD

The conference focuses on long-term care models where the workers, families, facilities, and the community are holistically involved in elder care, identifying the dynamics at play to advocate for patients’ needs. The Healthcare Workers Conference offers a platform where the involved community and healthcare workers advocate and effect intersectional and empathetic change in the elder care system.

Focusing on nursing and PSW topics, the workshops and speaker series will facilitate conversation and action surrounding the cultural and social innovation within healthcare systems and services. Following the panels, our networking fair will connect healthcare workers to employers across Ontario.
