APHN-Hospis Malaysia: Workshop on Grief & Bereavement Care

Dear Palliative Care Colleagues ,

Workshop on Grief & Bereavement Care: 14 – 15 December 2019

One of the aims of palliative care is to provide support to patients experiencing death anxiety and stress of cumulative loss, thereby creating a more healing environment for patients and their caregivers while at the same time being aware of the process of grief and own self-awareness issues.

This two-day intense workshop concludes our final series of palliative care workshops for 2018. The workshop is designed to facilitate the process of adaptation to loss and aims to greatly relieve suffering within the critical care setting by focusing on end-of-life needs.

Associate Professor Amy Chow from the University of Hong Kong and Dr Gilbert Fan from Singapore, both will be facilitating this course which is designed towards a very interactive and engaging experience. This workshop will be immensely valuable to clinicians, psychologists, social workers and counselors managing palliative care and care of the dying.

We would appreciate participants who are interested to submit their registration online at the Hospis Malaysia website https://www.hospismalaysia.org/griefandbereavement/

You may refer to the programme attached here.

 

Thank you

 

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Ednin Hamzah

Chief Executive Officer, Hospis Malaysia

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.

Oceanic Palliative Care Conference 2019, Perth

Oceanic Palliative Care Conference 2019
10 – 13 September 2019
Perth, Western Australia

In September 2019 the palliative care sector will gather in the beautiful location of Perth, Australia for the 2019 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference #19OPCC, formerly the Australian Palliative Care Conference. The theme for the inaugural Oceanic Palliative Care Conference is Universal Access: Oceans of Opportunities.

The theme will allow for exploration of palliative care as a human right and what can be done to ensure people from underserved populations can access palliative care and have their pain and other symptoms managed at the end of life.

The conference will promote the concept that palliative care should be available to everyone, regardless of their location, age, income,diagnosis, prognosis, gender, sexual orientation, social background or cultural origin.

By bringing people from across the globe together for three days of thoughtful, inspiring and practical discussions, delegates will leave armed with information and resources to improve palliative care in their regions. On behalf of Palliative Care Australia, Palliative Care WA and Hospice New Zealand, we look forward to seeing you in Perth in 2019.
