APHN-Hospis Malaysia: Workshop on Pain & Symptom Management

Dear Doctors & Nurses,


PALLIATIVE CARE WORKSHOP ON PAIN & SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT: 28 – 30 SEPTEMBER 2019

We are pleased to invite participants with an interest in the above topic in your organization to attend our forthcoming 3-days Palliative Care Workshop which would be conducted from 28 – 30 September 2019.

One of the core areas in palliative care is the ability to assess and manage common symptoms that affect patients with cancer and other serious chronic illness. It is extremely difficult to manage the psychological aspect and other issues if patients are in severe pain and experiencing other distressing symptoms.

This workshop focuses on management of pain, other physical symptoms and addresses issues on psychological distresses so that patients are given the opportunity to live their days with meaning during their end-of-life stage.

This workshop is conducted in English and facilitated by renowned and experienced Palliative Care Consultant from Australia, Dr Ghauri Aggarwal, as well other local speakers. It focuses on small group settings and will be most beneficial to those working in a Palliative Care and Oncology setting.

A copy of the programme and registration form is attached here for your reference. Submission of registration can be made either online at our website: www.hospismalaysia.org or e-mailed to education@hospismalaysia.org or faxed to: 603 9133 3941.
