The inaugural Advance Care Planning Australia conference is underway in Melbourne, hosted by Austin Health. Day one saw a launch by Hon. David Davis MLC, who reflected on the Victorian Government’s support for advance care planning and acknowledged the specific contribution of work focused on increasing the concordance between patient preferences, and the actual care delivered, as a marker of success in end-of-life care.
Online abstract submission is now open for the Asia Pacific Hospice Conference in Taipei, Taiwan (30 April – 3 May 2015), with the theme “Transforming Palliative Care”. More information is available at the conference website.
