PCNSW Biennial State Conference 2022

  • by Kate Bowman
  • June 28, 2022

Our theme, Facing the future together, offers delegates the chance to really challenge themselves and their practice by looking to the future. We encourage delegates to envisage how technology, collaboration, communities, environment and policy will change the way we engage in end of life care more broadly in the years to come.

Over recent years we have seen the resurgence of ‘normalising death’ and making death ‘everybody’s business’, with the uptake of Advance Care Directives, Last Days of Life tools, myriad literature, and communities initiating home hospices and death and dying awareness.

We now look ahead to consider: What is our vision for palliative care?  How do we achieve that together?

Sub-themes include:

  • The future of therapeutics and innovations in palliative care
  • Climate change – can there be a sustainable future at end of life?
  • Communication – new technology and skills in palliative care
  • Hope – the future of the palliative care workforce – are we ready?

Abstracts are invited to challenge delegates to recognise how Palliative Care can respond to the opportunities of the future, and must be received by the Palliative Care NSW office by 5pm Monday 4 July 2022 to be considered for inclusion.

We look forward to seeing you in November in Terrigal! Click here to go to the conference website and find out more about our exciting program of events.
