Abstract submissions for the 2023 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference are open

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) has opened abstract submissions for those who wish to share their experience and voice with over 800 delegates at 2023 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (23OPCC).

A dynamic program of speakers, presentations, performances, and workshops is at the heart of 23OPCC, 13 to 15 September, at the International Convention Centre, Sydney.

With Palliative Care NSW, PCA is proud to host 23OPCC, around the theme – “With the end in mind, shaping stronger health systems, delivering quality palliative care.”  

Share your work and experience, be a speaker at 23OPCC

Clinicians, academics, volunteers, consumers/patients, and carers are all encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration that taps into the theme.  

Contributions from all parts of the health and palliative care sectors are encouraged. Whether it’s new research findings, a successful project, a great idea, a volunteer journey, or a story of lived experience – PCA is seeking a diverse group of voices.   

Submissions from the wider Oceanic region (outside of Australia) are especially welcome.

Special attention will be given to first-time applicants and presenters with further information available on what makes a great abstract submission and how to deliver an engaging presentation. 

If you are interested in sharing your work with a passionate cohort of like-minded peers, get busy! Abstract submission/s are open until Wednesday, 15 March 2023.   

OPCC has a long and proud history of bringing together the full breadth of the health and palliative care sectors as well as those in connected care and service areas.   

Your experience and insights are critical in delivering this learning and professional development opportunity for our community at this important time of reform.
