This three day workshop deals with aspects of both pharmacological and psychological issues on pain and symptom management so that patients with life-limiting illness are given the opportunity to live out their days with meaning and with as little distress as possible.

Successful pain control requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that addresses all aspects of care and suffering. The workshop concentrates on small group settings and will be most beneficial to healthcare providers working in a palliative or oncology setting and other related specialty with a general interest in palliative care.
