Fostering Excellence in Palliative Medicine

Palliative Care is one of Veterinary Medicine’s most rapidly advancing fields. As developments in preventative medicine allow our patients to live longer, more families are looking for options to improve quality of life and help them navigate decision making. This year, we are are bringing together Australia’s leading voices on veterinary palliative care for an innovative one-day conference. This inaugural event aims to begin the conversation around best practice palliative care and encourage more practitioners to think about integrating this special area of care into daily practice.
