7th International African Palliative Care Conference registration and call for abstracts
The African Palliative Care Association (APCA) announces that the 7th International African Palliative Care Conference, co-hosted with the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance, will take place on the 24-26 August 2022 in Kampala, Uganda.
The Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa (HPCASA) are assisting with the advertising of this event to South Africa.
A hybrid conference
The conference will be hybrid to accommodate both physical and virtual participants. As the world is currently navigating the Covid-19 pandemic, the APCA and partners decided to focus on the theme: Palliative Care in a Pandemic.
Palliative care experts, researchers, health workers, carers, donors, and people living with palliative care needs will all find content of interest at this conference. It is also expected to attract several country ministers of health and dignitaries as well as government technical officials. Previous conferences have been very successful and this will be the first conference to held in pandemic context.
Invitation to submit abstracts
The APCA invites participants to submit abstracts for the conference.
Abstracts may include research, best practice models developed over the pandemic and recommendations to help us respond better in similar situations in the future. There are six broad conference tracks.
The deadline for submitting the abstracts is 1 April 2022.
Invitation to submit workshop proposals
The organising committee for the 7th International African Palliative Care Conference invites interested individuals or organisations to submit a workshop proposal for the conference. All workshops will be virtual, and we recommend that all speakers join the session live if possible. If necessary, speakers may record their presentations in advance for the moderator or workshop organiser to play during the live session.
