Looking Back, Looking Forward: Marking 40 Years of Palliative Care

As St Columba’s Hospice marks its 40th anniversary, this conference will offer a unique opportunity to engage with the vision of palliative care, reflect on how St Columba’s Hospice has shaped care until now; and share ideas on how palliative care can be developed further.

It has been well received amongst doctors, nurses, pharmacists, paramedics and AHPs and read across the world. It also recognizes the importance of valuing and supporting staff as vital to improving outcomes for the people in our care.
