The APM Juniors Conference 2022 is Here!

Taking place virtually on Saturday 12th November 2022, this conference is aimed primarily at helping medical students and pre-specialty training junior doctors explore their interest in palliative care, though all are welcome to attend. 

This year’s conference “Thinking Ahead: Palliative care on the wards” is inspired by the need to think ahead when caring for those with advanced illness in healthcare settings. We have an exciting list of speakers giving talks on useful topics for the wards such as anticipatory care planning and when to start thinking about palliative care for patients.

Additionally, the conference will be recorded so it will be possible to watch the talks back if you aren’t able to attend on the day.
