HENW Palliative Registrars Away Day on 17th June 2021

We will be running a educational seminar for NHS Higher Education (NW) Away day next week. Details can be found below.

The last year has been a challenging time for the health service, but through our collective efforts we are moving through it. Delayed from 2020, the ‘Fresh Focus on Palliative Medicine’ study day looks ahead to how Palliative Medicine could look going forwards.

Our speciality is moving evermore into the public domain. With that our day focuses on public relations, interactions through media and social media and the introduction of digital technologies into the field. The sessions will be delivered over Zoom but there will be plenty of opportunity for discussions and questions.
