Palliative Care Study Day - November

  • 06 349 0080 Call

This study day is for health care professionals with a particular interest in caring for patients with palliative care needs and work in areas that place particular emphasis on end of life issues/palliative care. 

Its aim is to increase the knowledge and confidence of attendees on  palliative care practice and improving end of life care for people and their families/whanau who are living with a life limiting illness.

The study days are palliative care focused with sessions being delivered from a variety of speakers and specialties with expertise in palliative care.  Included is a 1/2 hour panel discussion that gives attendees the opportunity to raise a particular topic/issue related to palliative care for our panel of experts to discuss.

Programme agenda is available two months prior to each study day, covering topics including:

  • Symptom management
  • Professional standards in a palliative context
  • Palliative care focused multicultural awareness

 Each study day offers attendees the opportunity to suggest future topics.
