Last chance to avail early bird registrations for the ‘8th Public Health Palliative Care International Conference’, Bern, Switzerland, 22nd – 25th October, 2024

Register before Sunday, 14th July, 2024, to avail early bird registration rates and participate in the ‘8th Public Health Palliative Care International Conference’, scheduled to be held at Bern, Switzerland, between Tuesday, 22nd October, 2024, and Friday, 25th, October, 2024.

The conference aims to create a unique opportunity to bring together people from various professional backgrounds from across the globe, in person or virtually, to share, learn and – build bridges. The conference is therefore themed, ‘Building Bridges between Science and People’.

The conference organisers believe that many competencies are needed to improve the currently inequitable experience of dying, caregiving, death and grief in our societies. To cater to these various needs the scientific conference integrates three thematic threads. While the main focus of the conference would be on projects in research and education from around the world, the second thread would focus on a program for the exchange of experiences from compassionate cities in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). The third thread is designed to focus on the development of compassionate cities within Switzerland inspired by international projects (these sessions will be translated French/ German).
