The 2014 Annual NICHE Conference is a three-day event highlighting evidence-based innovations, research, and networking opportunities, to support hospitals and other healthcare facilities in meeting the most critical challenge of our times - quality care of older adults.
Close to 1,000 health care professionals from over 300 NICHE member and non-member U.S. and Canadian hospitals will convene in San Diego. Our new “West Coast” site offers a warm and welcoming climate that will set the scene for our exciting collaborations and information exchanges.
Join us to discover innovative solutions and approaches to improving care of older adults. This year’s conference will focus on palliative/end of life, pain/pain management, transitions, chronic/acute illness and much more. Clinicians, administrators, and researchers will present evidence-based approaches to promote positive outcomes and experiences for the hospitalized older adult. Contact hours will be provided.
