The International Multidisciplinary Forum on Palliative Care (IMFPC 2013)
October 3-6, 2013.
Palliative care is an important part of the treatment of every patient with a life threatening illness. It is provided from the moment of diagnosis throughout the trajectory of the illness in order to improve symptom control and quality of life of the patients and their families. In certain countries palliative care has received accreditation as a specific specialty. However, each nurse and physician needs to acquire basic knowledge and skills in palliative care whether they specialize in family medicine, geriatrics, oncology, neurology, internal medicine, pediatrics or surgery.
The IMFPC 2013 Conference will focus on innovative educational sessions in palliative care for non-palliative care specialists, as well as including presentations, interactive workshops, and research at various levels of development.
