The 23rd International Conference of the Indian Association of Palliative Care (IAPCON 2016) will be held in Pune from February 12 to 14, 2016. This is being organised by Cipla Palliative Care and Training Centre and will be held at Hotel Hyatt Regency, Pune.




The theme of IAPCON 2016 is: engage, educate, empower and excel

- engage with the community, patients and their families, policy makers, opinion leaders, volunteers and the medical fraternity.

- education for all medical and paramedical personnel at all levels. This will help increase awareness about the important role of palliative care in ensuring quality of life, especially in the face of a life-limiting illness.

- empower every patient and the family to take informed decisions at the right time in partnership with the medical team.

- excel through interaction with experts and each other

We look forward to your presence at IAPCON 2016.
