On behalf of the APHC 2019 Organising Committee, we kindly invite you to attend the conference. This is the first APHC conducted in Indonesia and will be held in the city of Surabaya. Why in Surabaya? Surabaya is the place where palliative care organisations and services, as well as training has been conducted and are spreading to several cities in Indonesia.
Palliative care is a relatively new field of medicine in Indonesia that is not yet widely known. Having the theme “Bringing Hope to Those in Despair” for APHC 2019, it is hoped that the problems and challenges associated with palliative care development in Indonesia and the region can be solved through sharing of expertise and experience by world renowned experts during this conference. We hope that by holding APHC in Indonesia, palliative care can be better known in our country, advancing palliative care developments and in turn result in the building of better, more professional services.
The conference is co-organised by the Indonesian Palliative Society (MPI) and the Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Network (APHN). It can be attended by general practitioners and specialists, nurses, pharmacists and other healthcare workers, medical and nursing students, and volunteers involved in palliative care internationally.
