18th International Congress on Palliative Care

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 18th International Congress on Palliative Care, to be held October 5-8, 2010 at the Palais
des Congrès in Montréal, Canada.

Presented by the Palliative Care Division of the Departments of Medicine and Oncology of McGill University, this biennial Congress has grown to become one of the premier international events in palliative care. Healthcare professionals, therapists, volunteers and all those involved in palliative care come to renew themselves as providers of care and to obtain the inspiration that will help them shape the palliative care of the future.

This year’s Congress will offer four Concurrent Seminars (October 5), a two-day Pediatric Seminar (October 5-6), as well as plenary sessions, workshops, research forums, and poster sessions on subsequent days of the Congress. The Congress is trilingual, with interpretation offered in all three languages (English, French and Spanish) for plenaries and selected workshops and seminars.
