Our conference offers a mix of plenary presentations and a wide choice of parallel sessions looking at "Transforming Palliative Care".

Conference programme and timings

As we expect many people will be staying overnight on 26 November, there’s an opportunity to register on 26 November, to hang your poster if you’ve had one accepted for display, and to attend some pre-conference events, including:

  • A workshop (16.30 – 17.45) ‘Thinking outside the box’, an opportunity to consider how we can extend research dissemination beyond the traditional media of academic journals and poster presentations
  • A free drinks reception (18.00 – 19.15), introduced by Kevin Toolis, journalist and author of ‘My Father’s Wake’

On the 27 and 28 November, we’ll have breakfast seminars (8.00 am onwards) and the rest of the days’ schedules are:

  • 27 November: 09.15 – 18.00 and the conference dinner at 19.30
  • 28 November: 08.45 – 16.10
