Dear Colleagues, for the last four years, the International Collaborative for the Best Care for the Dying Person has held its annual conference,in Europe visiting Lund, Sweden, (2014), Liverpool, UK, (2015), Bern, Switzerland (2016) and Liverpool again, (2017). This year we are delighted to be holding the conference in South America which we will hope will offer many more palliative care professionals to engage in the work of the Collaborative. This two-day conference brings together national and international leaders in palliative and end of life care to share best practice and discuss key themes for the next five years. The Collaborative currently has representatives from 21 countries worldwide, including patients, families, nursing, psychology, law, sociology, ethics, economics, public relations and medicine.
Before the Conference, for members and researchers of the International Collaborative only, we have organized a clinical day, the regular 24 hour research meeting and social activities (5th to 7th November).
On Friday 9th it will take place the First Argentinian Research Conference in Palliative Care jointly organized with the Argentinian Association of Palliative Care (AAMYCP).
The Institute Pallium Latinoamérica, the Palliative Care Argentinian Association (AAMYCP) and the Academic Council of Ethic in Medicine, End of Life Decisions (CAEEM), we look forward to welcoming you to Buenos Aires for what promises to be an exciting and enjoyable event!
