Share your work and experience, be a speaker at 2023 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference

A dynamic program of speakers, presentations, performances, and workshops is at the heart of a successful 2023 Oceanic Palliative Care Conference (23OPCC) in Sydney this September.

Palliative Care Australia (PCA) and Palliative Care NSW (PCNSW) are delighted to open abstract submissions for those who wish to be part of the 23OPCC program and share their experience and voice with over 800 delegates.

PCA is the national peak body for palliative care and represents all those who work towards providing quality palliative care for all Australians. Our mission is to influence, foster and promote the delivery of quality palliative care for all who need it, when and where they need it.

With Palliative Care NSW, we are the proud host of 23OPCC, around the theme - “With the end in mind, shaping stronger health systems, delivering quality palliative care.”

“Clinicians, academics, volunteers, patients, and carers are all encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration that taps into our theme and shared mission,” says Linda Hansen, PCNSW, CEO.

“We are encouraging contributions from all parts of the health and palliative care sectors. Whether it’s new research findings, a successful project, a great idea, a volunteer journey, or a story of lived experience – we are creating a space that showcases a diverse group of voices.”

Submissions from the wider Oceanic region (outside of Australia) are especially welcome.

“Special attention will be given to first-time applicants and presenters with extra information available on what makes a great abstract submission and how to deliver an engaging presentation,” Ms Hansen says.

“If you are interested in sharing your work with a passionate cohort of like-minded peers, we welcome your abstract submissions until Wednesday, March 15.

“OPCC has a long and proud history of bringing together the full breadth of the health and palliative care sectors as well as those in connected care and service areas – and I can’t wait to welcome people to Sydney in spring,” Ms Hansen says.

“Your experience and insights are critical in delivering this learning and professional development opportunity for our community at this important time of reform.”
