We are honoured to have Dr Joan Marston from South Africa speaking on the topic of Palliative Care in Humanitarian Crisis. Given the current global COVID19 pandemic, this webinar would be a great opportunity to find out palliative care needs, practices, barriers, and recommendations in humanitarian crisis settings. You will be able to ask Dr Marston any questions you may have at the end of the session.
