Capital Health and Dalhousie Continuing Medical Education hosted its third annual Care by Design Long Term Care conference Friday, Nov 1, 2013.

More than 250 people who work in Long Term Care, including nurses, pharmacists, physicians and facility administrators, gathered at Pier 21 to hear eight insightful speakers tackle topical issues such as polypharmacy, pain medications, dementia, urinary tract infections and more.

"The conference was wonderful," says Jo-Ann Martell-MacKay, Administrator of Maplestone Enhanced Care (Shannex). "The speakers were engaging and the topics were very relevant and timely for what’s happening in our facility. I will definitely be there next year."
