Who should attend the conference?
Anyone who works in home care or hospice, from middle management to senior management, will benefit from the Home Care and Hospice Conference and Expo. This includes nurses, supervisors, owners, and operators in nearly every specialty field who want to learn more about industry trends and current issues. Networking with peers at all levels is also a great way to learn and share information.
Finally, the Expo provides the industry’s largest marketplace for buyers and sellers, something you don’t want to miss if you’re looking for ways to deliver patient-centered care more safely and efficiently.
