The 14th Australian Palliative Care Conference (17APCC) brought over 860 clinicians, researchers, allied health practitioners, educators and carers who have a passion for palliative care.
Our aim was to leave you feeling connected with community and based on feedback already received, 17APCC connected more delegates, sponsors and exhibitors than ever before. We also virtually connected with the broader community through Facebook, Twitter and by live streaming plenary sessions and creating highlight videos.
We’re also proud to have provided scholarships to 38 people working in aged care and scholarships to 20 postgraduate students to attend to further their skills and knowledge in the palliative care community.
We’re so glad you joined us and look forward to welcoming you to Perth for 19APCC, 10-13 September 2019.

If you weren’t able to make it this year we warn you that looking at #17APCC may trigger a physiological reaction akin to fear-of-missing-out (also known as FOMO). If this happens we recommend putting the dates for the 15th Australian Palliative Care Conference in Perth, WA in your diary now. 10-13 September 2019
Palliative Care Australia gratefully acknowledges the support of our Sponsors, Supporters and Exhibitors for the Australian Palliative Care Conference 2017.
