Palliative Care NSW are holding their biennial conference in Kiama from 8 – 10 November. The theme is ‘Riding the Waves of Change’. Abstracts are invited to challenge delgates to recognise how we can respond to the waves of change.

The conference seeks contributions that explore, inform or challenge around four themes:


•  Changing role of clinicians (eg generalist care at end-of-life; prescribing by nurses; medication vs psychosocial symptom management; role of allied health)
•  Changing role of partnerships (eg shared care arrangements; role of ambulance; NDIS/My Aged Care; residential aged care; research; policy development and legislation; volunteers)
•  Changing role of technology (eg assistive technology in the home or the ward; telehealth)
•  Changing way of dying (eg recognising dying; non-malignant care; institutional or homeless dying; cultural considerations; voluntary assisted dying; support in bereavement).

Don’t dive into despair!

 We’ve had too many requests for extensions to ignore so with apologies to those who have made the deadline and/or who were planning to spend their weekend on it – we have decided to extend the deadline for the submission of abstracts to5pm MONDAY 4 JUNE 2018. Click here for submission instructions.Click here to go to the conference website.
