For healthcare professionals with an interest in palliative care.

Thanks to the generous support of the Cancer Research Trust NZ, Hospice NZ is delighted to present the Palliative Care Lecture Series 2019, hosted by hospices throughout the country.

The lectures are delivered via teleconference with a Powerpoint presentation that the speaker guides participants through. This education opportunity is designed to suit the needs of a multidisciplinary audience with an interest in Palliative Care.

These lectures are also an ideal opportunity for those in General Practice to fulfil the annual one hour update requirements.
