Hosted by the Centre for Palliative Care, the Colloquium provides an invaluable opportunity for those interested or involved in the provision of evidence based care of patients with advanced disease to learn, connect and collaborate. 

Our keynote speaker this year is Professor Glenn Bowes from University of Melbourne, who will start us off by talking about Philanthropy and Palliative Care. 

Other topics that will be discussed during the 6th Australian Palliative Care Research Colloquium include:

  • Steps for research in health interventions involving implementation science.
  • New research and law: legal aspects of palliative care and end of life care.
  • Practical aspects of clinical trials: challenges and learnings
  • Making collaborative interdisciplinary research a success

The palliative Care Research Network (PCRN) will also host a pre-Colloquium Breakfast Forum on "Cannabis research in palliative care - The highs and lows" on Thursday 25 October 2018. This Forum will provide an overview on the current situation of cannabis research in palliative care and also provide general guidance on how to build a cannabis research program, using examples of current cannabis research studies. Additional issues with cannabis research that can become barriers to progress and possible solutions will also be discussed.

Casual networking opportunities have also been included in the Colloquium schedule to promote collaboration between attendees.
