The Detailed Programme of the 17th International Congress on Palliative Care, to be held September 23-26, 2008 at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Canada, is now available on the Congress web site at www.pal2008.com
Founded in 1976 under the leadership of palliative care pioneer Dr. Balfour Mount and presented by the Palliative Care Division of the Departments of Medicine and Oncology of McGill University, this biennial Congress has grown to become one of the premier international events in palliative care. Bringing together over 1500 participants from around the world, the Congress provides an opportunity to review and share the latest developments in research as well as perspectives on end-of-life care from different cultures, spiritual traditions, and professions.
This year’s outstanding programme features five plenary sessions, four all-day Concurrent Seminars, research fora, 160 workshops, proffered papers and symposia, and over 200 posters.
