14-16 October, Dublin

Scott Murray attended a meeting of the WHO technical advisory group to promote integrated palliative care, and mentioned the work of our group, and gave advice based on our primary care perspective. He emphasised the important of identifying patients in all settings so that they can access palliative care. The skills and tools needed to do this must be developed urgently. Other members of the group also attended the excellent Colloquium hosted by the Irish Institute and the WHO.
