Presentations from national advance care planning forum now available
In November 2016 the first ever national advance care planning forum and public evening event was held at the Ellerslie Event Centre, Auckland.
Attended by over 250 people, it included a plenary address from Will Cairns – state-wide clinical lead for end-of-life care for Queensland – who talked about the history of death and dying through the ages.
A number of topics were covered, including missed opportunities for advance care planning presented by Clarice Alardice and Courtney Thrupp and acute care and the impact of positivity at the end of life presented by Dr Bill Lunkin.
Presentations from the speakers at the forum are now available to view at www.acpforum2016.com under the ‘Presentations’ tab.
