Dying and.... Summer Forums Program 2016

Each year Palliative Care SA hosts a number of educational forums and learning opportunities open to all disciplines in a bid to improve awareness of death as a normal part of life and help clinicians of all disciplines and across all settings to better understand the choices for care when the shift in focus moves to relief, comfort and support, no matter the disease process. 

The 2016 Dying and.... forum series is an opportunity for clinicians to hear from local, regional and interstate speakers who are experts in their fields, share ideas through peer to peer exchange of experiences and practices, network and establish connections with others and keep informed on topics of interest and relevance to your practice.

Professor Fran McInerney kicks off the series at the Royal Coach Inn, 24 Dequettiville Terrace, Kent Town, 5.30pm - 7.30pm on Thursday February 25th and will be talking about Dying and .....dementia.
