Melbourne – 5th Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium

5th Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium
Thursday October 26 – Friday October 27

Are you interested in the provision of evidence based care of patients with advanced disease?

Hosted by the Centre for Palliative Care (St. Vincent’s Hospital and a Collaborative Centre of the University of Melbourne, Australia), the Colloquium provides an invaluable opportunity for those involved in the provision of evidence based care of patients with advanced disease to learn, connect and collaborate.

Our keynote speaker this year is Professor Hal Swerissen from Grattan Institute & La Trobe University, who will start us off by talking about how palliative care research can influence health policy.

Other topics that will be discussed during the 5th Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium include:

• Conducting research in clinical education: how data can demonstrate efficacy and drive practice change.
• Program Logic: Preparation prevents poor performance – using planning frameworks to develop, conduct and measure the impact of your research.
• Clinical Trials: Changing the World!
• All you need to know about the methodological insights when conducting palliative care research involving complex populations.
• The world needs to know about your research: Using social media to disseminate your work.

The Palliative Care Research Network (PCRN) will also host an interactive pre-Colloquium breakfast workshop on ‘Communicating research to a lay audience’ on Thursday 26 October 2017. At this workshop, Sasha Petrova from The Conversation will provide insights on how you could communicate your research to the general public in a language that is understandable to those who don’t work in the medical field.
