I’ve heard the question of what should we be doing in future research many times. But are there things we should not be doing in palliative care research? I’ve only heard this question asked once in a formal conference setting, and it elicited mostly stunned silence, followed by varying levels of opposition and attempts to reframe the question.
The latest update of the Palliverse researchers database is here! Our numbers continue to grow and we will be talking about (and hopefully recruiting for) the database as a poster presentation at the upcoming Asia Pacific Hospice Conference in Taipei, Taiwan. Come and say hello in person if you will also be attending!
Once again, if you’ve have any stories associated with the database, we’d love to know! Email us at Palliverse@gmail.com
I thoroughly recommend this course by ANZSPM in Melbourne 18 -20 June. Aimed at medical practitioners and nurse practitioners, it offers “two full days of state of the art educational updates in areas relevant to practitioners who work in, or have an interest in, Palliative Medicine.”

There is an associated trainees day and supervisor’s workshop
I’d recommend the current issues of New Philospher (#7: Health) and Quarterly Essay (#57: Dear Life) for some palliative care-related reading. If you can’t make it to the book shop here are some online reads:

Recently I had the great privilege of attending the launch of the Lowitja Institute’s Recognise Health campaign at Parliament House in Canberra.
I was invited to represent Palliative Care Nurses Australia at the launch, and was equally delighted to see Liz Callaghan, CEO of Palliative Care Australia, also in attendance to support this important initiative.
