For the third year in a row, the Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium was held at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel in Melbourne on October 22-23. The meeting was once again preceded by a breakfast forum hosted by Palliative Care Research Network Victoria (PCRNV), which served as a tempting entrée to the two-day main course of fantastic presentations and workshops exploring a diverse range of topics pertaining to palliative care research. Conversations about research continued over tea and meal breaks, next to quality poster presentations, and during the convivial conference dinner on the banks of the Yarra.  Continue reading

ANZSPM Update 2015 – Registrations Now Open

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.”

This is the third medical and surgical update for palliative medicine peeps that has been offered.  I have attended in the past and found it really worthwhile.

There is an associated trainees day and supervisor’s workshop
