2008 Attendee Testimonial

“The course turned out really well...It’s actually more than what I expected...The quality of the lectures and the speakers...each one had many points that I’ll be able to take back and actually use in my practice.”

Dr. Michael Filiaggi,

Palliative Medicine is developing rapidly in the United States. This symposium focuses on providing an intensive multi-disciplinary review of cutting-edge topics in the field. The intent is to provide updates on the latest advances in the field of Palliative Medicine and Supportive Oncology in a format that allows interaction between the faculty and attendees. This year we are providing added value with a similar approach to Supportive Oncology in the afternoon opposite palliative medicine workshops.

  • Review the new regulatory issues of hospice
  • Improve multidisciplinary pain assessment and management
