Professional Learning Networks

Professional Learning Networks

Our Professional Learning Networks bring community professionals working in the North Okanagan together to connect and learn about a variety of topics relating to end-of-life.

On a regular basis, we offer live streamed webinars on-line. We are pleased to present upcoming webinars by the Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention, UBC Okanagan and the Hospice Foundation of America.

Please note that "Continuing Education" credits are available for North Okanagan Hospice Society members, staff and volunteers only.
