Queen’s University Kingston, ON

Conference Overview:

Come one, come all to the historic city of Kingston Ontario where our palliative care colleagues from Queen’s University and the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians (CSPCP) will be hosting the 2012 CSPCP conference! The theme of the conference will be exploring the historical roots of Palliative Care in Canada and looking forward to what the future may bring. We feel this theme aligns very well with the historical perspectives of Kingston and surrounding area. In response to repeated requests over the years, we will be accepting scientific abstracts for oral presentations, thus keeping you current in the realm of palliative care research.
