Event Details

A team approach to palliative care can, and should, include everyone in an oncology setting: physicians, palliative care specialists, nurses, hospice professionals, social workers, and others. The 2015 Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium will provide information that is vital to the entire cancer care continuum, from laboratory research regarding biologic mechanisms of symptoms to caring for patients’ psychosocial and spiritual needs during cancer treatment and at end of life. Abstracts will be discussed in the General Sessions, as well as in dedicated Oral Abstract and Poster Discussion Sessions, providing ample context around the scientific data—the whole-patient perspective. Four new networking events have been added this year, allowing for increased interaction with colleagues from within and outside of your specialty as well as increased opportunities for one-on-one discussions with palliative care experts. Given the overwhelming success of the inaugural Symposium, this year’s meeting will take place at a new venue, the Boston Marriott Copley Place, and will feature classroom-style seating and space for networking, posters, and exhibits. – See more at: https://pallonc.org/about#sthash.LQfK9Isi.dpuf
