Modern comprehensive cancer care involves the rapid and systematic translation of research findings from the laboratory bench to the bedside of the person with cancer. Best cancer care is up to date, evidence based and peer reviewed. Recent evidence suggests that palliative care has benefits for patients’ well-being and quality of life, with improvements extending to the patient’s family and to the ways which patients engage with health care systems. Yet despite this evidence, palliative care integration remains, at best, patchy.
Professor Jennifer Philip, VCCC Chair of Palliative Medicine at The University of Melbourne, St Vincent’s Hospital and VCCC, will discuss current patterns of cancer care as people approach the final stages of life in Victoria. The current role of palliative care will be explored, along with the challenges that recent palliative care evidence raises for cancer care clinicians nationally. Professor Phillip will also discuss the steps that must be negotiated to ensure that high quality cancer care includes palliative care as a matter of course.
Light lunch served from 12.30pm
