Palliative care is everyone’s business: let’s work together
Palliative care is an integral part of the healthcare system. This full day education forum will help you understand where it fits and discuss the key issues and opportunities currently facing palliative care.
This day will cover diverse and important topics and is a must attend for any health professional or policy maker who cares about high quality healthcare.
We’ll be asking big questions about how we deliver palliative care in a challenging panel session What are the barriers to making palliative care everyone’s business and how do we break them down? This session will ask leading figures in the health sector to comment on palliative care from their perspective and give you the chance to have your say.
We’ll also be looking at:
- Activity Based Funding and its ongoing implications
- Cultural safety in palliative care – for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the LGBTI and multicultural communities
- Palliative care on the international stage – what is the intersection between palliative care and human rights and how is the World Health Assembly involved?
- What’s new in palliative care education
A trade display showcasing the latest information in palliative care will provide great networking opportunities for delegates.
