Conference Objectives Were:
• apply acquired knowledge in advanced palliative medicine to treat patients living with a wide range of life-threatening illnesses;
• educate medical colleagues (practicing physicians and learners), other health care professionals, patients, families, and the general public about palliative care; and
• recognize the importance of advocating for improved access to palliative care in local, regional, and national settings.

Please note that due to the advanced medical content at this conference, registration is open to physicians only. We encourage professionals from other disciplines to attend one of Canada’s excellent interdisciplinary palliative care conferences: The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Conference or the International Congress on Palliative Care.
