The AMS Phoenix 2015 Conference was held on Thursday, November 19th, in conjunction with the University of Toronto, at the InterContinental Hotel-Bloor Street in Toronto. The Conference got under way at 9:30 am with Bridget Duffy, MD, a physician and thought leader on patient, family and staff experience in healthcare, framing our discussions with her opening keynote, “Humanizing Healthcare: Restoring Joy and Compassion to Medicine”. Dr. Dennis Rosen, Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, provided the patient perspective with his “Addressing Illness and Sickness Alongside Disease”. The afternoon also provided an opportunity to hear about the ground-breaking work of our AMS Phoenix Fellows in bringing compassion to healthcare in Ontario.
A special Ceremonial Dinner at 7pm commenced with a chat with Dr. Bob Bell, Deputy Minister, Ministry Of Health and Long-Term Care, and celebrated the second cohort of Phoenix Fellows and their sponsoring institutions.
On Friday November 20th, Phoenix Fellows and Grantees, spent the day sharing their work and ideas, participating in workshops, and continuing to build the AMS Phoenix network.
