Over 1000 delegates attended the 2021 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (21OPCC) last week through 7-10 September.

In his opening address, The Minister for Health and Aged Care, The Hon Greg Hunt MP paid homage to palliative care staff, volunteers, medical professionals, researchers and carers, for their efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic, praising them for providing care to ‘our most vulnerable Australians at their most vulnerable time.’
