Creating Connections Palliative Care Conference (in person and Zoom)

Changing Policy and Practice

Tuesday 28 June 2022

We were delighted to jointly host the Creating Connections Palliative Care Conference, organised by the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre at Hull York Medical School based at the University of Hull, and the Centre for Improving Palliative, Aged and Chronic Care through Clinical Research and Translation (IMPACCT) at the University Of Technology Sydney.

This free-to-attend event provided an opportunity to see some of the exciting and leading-edge research being undertaken as part of our collaboration funded by the Research England's International Investment Initiative (I3). The I3 builds on the established partnership between our both our research Centres.

The conference featured a keynote address on ‘Multidisciplinary symptom control; walking the talk, by Professor Meera Agar, Director IMPACCT, Professor of Palliative Medicine, University of Technology Sydney.
