We invite those interested in palliative care research or related fields, to join us at the 3rd Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium, in Melbourne on 22 October and, 23 October 2015.
Considerable funding is spent on research into cancer prevention, cure and other diseases, yet there is an extraordinarily small proportion of research funding allocated to palliative care. The positive contribution that palliative care brings to supporting patients with advanced disease and their families is now undisputable; with published reviews showing significant outcomes.
Despite shortfalls in funding and a relatively small pool of academics concentrating specifically on palliative care, Australia is highly regarded in terms of academic achievements in this area. In order to continue to foster the evolution of empirical inquiry into palliative care, it is important that we continue to collaborate and have an opportunity to discuss key issues and learn new approaches. The Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium provides this opportunity.
We would be delighted if you can join us at this important forum.
