Trina Diner knows more people die in hospital than die at home, and that is not always preferred.

Her engaging talk addresses technology and telemedicine, in an honest, compassionate and thoughtful manner.

Is this a frontier we should explore more?... Trina's talk gives us all a baseline to think about.

Trina obtained her masters in Management Science from the University of Waterloo and is the current Manager of Palliative Care and Telemedicine, at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre.

As a pioneer focused on “change for the better” using technology, Trina passionately works with the terminally ill to help provide better quality medical care.

She has been recognized as a hands-on expert in her field, as medicine and technology work together to the benefit and comfort of all patients regardless of age or situation.
