VCCC MONDAY LUNCH LIVE EVENT

Palliative Care is an aspect of care that will touch us all in some way during our lives and the lives of those around us. Our knowledge of managing common issues in palliative care remains in many regards basic, however we have learnt much and there are many opportunities to enhance what we provide. A/Prof Le will explore these opportunities with a focus on clinical trials being key to improving the science behind the art of care.

A/Prof Brian Le is the Director of Palliative Care in the Parkville Precinct, including the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and The Royal Melbourne Hospital. Brian is a specialist in both Palliative Medicine and Medical Oncology, and is an Associate Professor of the University of Melbourne. He is also the current Chair of the Training Committee of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, responsible for training of all palliative medicine specialists in Australia and New Zealand.

Brian is involved with many other Commonealth and State governmental and not-for-profit organisations concerning Palliative Care, and is a past chairman of Palliative Care Victoria. Brian is involved with research in the areas of palliative and supportive care, including clinical trials of novel therapies, and research into palliative care integration and benefits for patients and carers.
