APLI Annual Forum, 2016

Members and non-members alike are warmly invited to attend the 2016 Australasian Palliative Link International Forum. The APLI forum is usually held in Melbourne but this year it will be in Adelaide for the first time, adjacent to the Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer conference.

The objectives of the forum are to update the healthcare community about Project Hamrahi activities, provide a networking opportunity for like-minded clinicians, allow the recruitment and training of new Project Hamrahi mentors and finally to publicise the work of APLI. Do see below for the list of topics and speakers. For more information please contact Davinia at info@apli.net.au.

Hippocratic film applauded across Australia

Hippocratic Film Header

With only one city remaining in the Australian launch of the biographical documentary, Hippocratic, it is clear that the film has had great impact here.

One important feature has been the opportunity for Q&A after the movie, where audience members have a chance to delve deeper into the issues raised in the film, such as trying to understand the distressing ongoing shortage of morphine, an essential medication in pain management, a shortage that affects over 80% of the world’s population.

This issue alone should galvanise us to action, to demand change and accountability. However, long time advocates in this field know only too well how difficult it is to bring about change and improvements here.

Films such as Hippocratic are too few and APLI thanks Moonshine Movies for their commitment to contributing to change in a creative and positive way.
