2013 Conference

Date/Time Display: 
Friday 6 - Saturday 7 September 2013
Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa

The 2013 Conference theme is Die Another Way: End of Life Choices. Designed around this theme, sessions will focus on issues not frequently addressed.  With our ageing population, increased demand on both the public and private health systems, the economics of keeping patients alive will be addressed.  Perspectives from the intensive care, emergency, palliative care and geriatric wards will provide valuable insight.  Add to this, the issues of pain management, advanced health directives, dignity and quality of life, patient choice and family dynamics. The role that the law plays in clinical decision-making will complete the picture.
