On behalf of the Organising Committee I am delighted to invite you to attend the 2016 Palliative Care Nurses Australia Conference. This biennial conference brings together Australian and New Zealand nurses with an interest in delivering high quality, contemporary palliative care.

This two day conference is the perfect forum for palliative care nurses to seek new knowledge, become familiar with new products and services to the industry, and to identify opportunities to translate the best evidence into clinical and academic excellence. Networking, debating and socialising with peers adds a further dimension to the experience. With several plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and workshops, the structure of the conference provides the ideal environment for these activities to occur.

The surroundings of Hotel Realm Canberra, offer an ideal venue to facilitate a successful conference.

I look forward to your involvement in the Palliative Care Nurses Australia 2016 Conference and meeting with you in Canberra next spring.

Yours sincerely

Jane Phillips PhD RN
