About the Palliative Medicine and Supportive Oncology Symposium

The Palliative Medicine and Supportive Oncology Symposium focuses on providing an intensive multidisciplinary review of cutting-edge topics in the rapidly developing field of palliative medicine and supportive oncology. This year the Machaskee Lecture will feature Dr. Eduardo Bruera speaking on "Delirium at the End of Life." Together, we will explore potential solutions to improve the quality of care for patients with chronic illness through palliative and supportive oncology therapies.
