International Conference on Palliative Care and Care of the Older Person

Marymount University Hospital and Hospice hold their first International Conference on Palliative Care and Care of the Older Person to be held in the Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork, Ireland on the 15th -17th October 2015. 

The theme of the conference is “On Life’s Journey…” and will explore and examine the unique life journey of people requiring palliative and care for older people services. All life journey’s should focus on quality of life and people should be facilitated “to live until they die”. (Saunders, 1976) At times that journey may be turbulent but there must be safety in the haven of palliative care or care of the older person services, where symptoms are managed, quality of care provided and cognisance taken of the physical, psychological, sociological and spiritual aspects of each individual as well as those who care for them.
