The Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Ireland (APM) and the Palliative Care Research Society (PCRS) will be hosting the APM’s Annual Supportive and Palliative Care Conference (ASP Conference) in association with the Palliative Care Congress (PCC) in March 2018 at the Bournemouth International Centre (BIC), Bournemouth, Dorset. Past ASP and PCC events have attracted over 500 delegates from around the world from a diverse multidisciplinary background.
The aim of the Conference is to promote evidence-based compassionate care through the presentation and discussion of new research findings, showcasing new approaches to patient care and “state of the art” approaches to common palliative care problems. As well as the multi professional academic programme, the Conference will feature many practical workshops, as well as updates on political and ethical issues relating to the specialty of Supportive & Palliative Care.
The varied programme should ensure a high number of delegates from all the different disciplines and sectors, including doctors, nurses and allied health professionals from academia, primary care, secondary care and the third sector.
