Quality of Life conference comes to Hobart

PALLIATIVE care and end-of-life planning isn’t only about death and dying – it is about living the best life you can while living with a life-limiting condition, accessing the most appropriate supports, and ensuring your end-of-life wishes are understood.

It is all about ‘quality of life’, which is the theme of this year’s palliative care conference being held in Hobart on 17-18 November.

Featuring international and national guest speakers, 24 concurrent information sessions and a trade show of service providers, the 2022 Tasmanian Palliative Care Conference will bring together leading minds to exchange and share experiences. As well as professional and personal development, it will be a great opportunity to network with more than 200 palliative care professionals from a range of disciplines.

The two-day conference is open to the community and to people working across the sector including clinical and non-clinical health care professionals, aged care workers, home care providers, community service organisations, volunteers, carers or anyone supporting someone living with a life-limiting condition or grieving.

The conference will showcase more than 20 speakers including Dr Leeroy William, the director of Supportive and Palliative Care Service at the Eastern Health Clinical School; Professor Kimberly D. Acquaviva from the University of Virginia School of Nursing; Professor Steven Z Pantilat from the University of California San Francisco; and Dr Lidia Engel and Dr Katrin Gerber from the National Ageing Research Institute in Victoria. See the website for a full program list.
