Conference promoters are increasingly targeting Australian palliative care audiences with misleading claims and advertising. Here are some examples:

Australian Palliative Care Conference 31 July 2018 in Melbourne is promoted as 'organised by Palliative Care Australia' – this is false. It also links to the Palliative Care NSW website and claims that we are exhibitors – this is false.

Hospice and Palliative Care Conference July 18-19 2018 in Melbourne, also promoted as Hospice 2018 Melbourne Australia, has no links to Palliative Care Victoria or Palliative Care Australia and is part of the discredited OMICS brand.

The most reputable aggregated source of information about palliative care conferences in Australia is the CareSearch Conferences webpage.

The Palliative Care NSW 2018 Biennial State Conference 'Riding the Waves of Change' will be held on 8-10 November in Kiama.

The next Australian Palliative Care Conference will be hosted by Palliative Care Australia on 10-13 September 2019 in Perth.
