European conference ‘Dignity for the Frail Old’

Many of you may be interested in the up coming conference ‘Dignity for the Frail Old’, which will be held in Bergen (Norway) September 2th – 5th 2010.

The following information comes from the conference organisers:

We have the pleasure to invite you to our European Conference: Dignity for the Frail Old at Solstrand Fjord Hotel close to Bergen, Norway, September 2th – 5th 2010.

In the program international key-note speakers will give state-of-the art presentations to central topics regarding dignity for the frail old, followed by extended possibilities of the participants for exchange of their experiences and recommendations for action.

The famous Conference-Hotel lies at a Fjord in the most beautiful Norwegian surroundings, and offers outstanding housing and conference facilities. Clinton was there. Cicely Saunders and Balfour Mount where there, Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud also. You will not forget this place!

We have reserved the whole hotel capacity for this conference, limited to 140 participants. The interest for the conference is already huge, so we recommend early registration.
