Marie Curie believes that by investing in high-quality palliative and end of life care research we can provide immediate and longer-term benefits to people with terminal illnesses. At the 2015 Marie Curie Annual Palliative Care Research Conference we will hear from experts who are working to shape the future of palliative care. We will hear talks on quality and costing of palliative care, as well as the benefits and pitfalls of using social media in palliative care and research.
Abstracts for short presentations and/or posters on research in palliative and end of life care are invited. Whilst abstracts relevant to the future of palliative care are more likely to be chosen for oral presentation, we welcome submissions on any subject in palliative and end of life care.
To submit an abstract(s), please complete the form below and submit electronically by 5pm on Friday 5th December 2014 to: firstname.lastname@example.org
