#17APCC – Death Over Drinks, aged care, Maggie Beer & more

One sign of a good conference is when weeks after the conference (and beyond), it  inspires you and changes your practice. The Australian Palliative Care Conference closed in Adelaide more than two weeks ago and I am still digesting the (at-times challenging) content from the plenary sessions, panels and breakout presentations.

If you were unable to attend the conference, or would like to revisit the many excellent presentations and themes, luckily Marie McInerney from Croakey was there to provide excellent reporting, with ten articles about the conference. You can even catch up on the conference tweets in her reports (including some from Team Palliverse).

Catch up at the Croakey site (and keep reading for the rest of their excellent Australian health coverage).

PS See you in Perth for #19APCC!

2016 APLI Annual Forum


Are you interested in global palliative care? Australasian Palliative Link International (APLI) are holding their Annual Forum in Adelaide on Wednesday, 22 June 2016, prior to the Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer meeting.

APLI are responsible for the award-winning Project Hamrahi, which links Australian palliative care clinicians with their Indian counterparts who are establishing local palliative care services. APLI says the annual forum aims “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.” It looks like an inspiring schedule of speakers.
