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!
