Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa Symposium 2017

The South African National Policy Framework and Strategy for Palliative Care mandates that all health professionals be trained in palliative care.

The Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa is hosting its Symposium 2017 from 6-9 November 2017 at Southern Sun, Pretoria and invites you to attend the event where we are expecting around 500 health professionals. This is a master class in palliative care. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. The up to date information and experiences of palliative care shared with symposium delegates will enhance the quality of care provided to their patients.

HPCA will be celebrating its 30th year of supporting the delivery of quality palliative care in South Africa. The symposium will address recent positive developments in the sector and look at strengthening continuing professional development for doctors, nurses and other health workers ultimately ensuring improved services and quality of care within our private and public health sector.

Please note that CPD points will be available for the HPCA Symposium for all health professionals.
