Interesting in helping to develop palliative care in the Asia-Pacific region?
APLI is the Australasian Palliative Link International.
It is a small charitable organisation made up of Australian and New Zealand palliative care clinicians. APLI aims :
- to develop and foster links between palliative care providers and organisations in Australia and New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region
- to raise awareness of the needs of new palliative care services and the need for further development of the discipline in the region.
- to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between providers of palliative care in the region.
Dr Anil Tandon, Chairman of APLI, reports that arrangements for the annual APLI forum have now been finalised. This year it will be in Sydney, adjacent to the ANZSPM conference, on Wednesday 5 September. The objectives of the forum are to update the healthcare community about Project Hamrahi activities, provide a networking opportunity for like-minded clinicians, allow the recruitment and training of new Project Hamrahi mentors and finally to publicise the work of APLI.
If you are at ANZSPM and interested in international palliative care, do come along.
Wednesday 5 September 2018 from 8:30am to 3:15pm
at The University of Technology Sydney
15 Broadway, Ultimo NSW 2007
The APLI annual forum is an opportunity to learn about the work that is being done to help with the development of palliative care in our neighbouring countries and meet like-minded clinicians who share a passion for global health.
This year the program will include presentations from volunteer mentors Sarah Begley and Joan Ryan. Brett Sutton will provide an update on palliative care in humanitarian aid settings and emergencies and Delamy Keall will discuss her three-month advanced training placement in Kerala. We will also hear from Pallium India project officer Shalini AJ.
