Call for abstracts and registration open

If you are interested in how we connect, who we connect with and how effectively our connections can strengthen and build a community of practice and care within palliative care, do not miss the 2017 Australian Palliative Care Conference Connection with Community to be held in Adelaide, 6-8 September 2017.
