Listing details


The Australian and New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine

Description
ANZSPM facilitates professional development and support for its members, promotes the practice of Palliative Medicine and advocates for those who work in the field of palliative medicine.
Part of ANZSPM's core business is to provide a variety of continuous professional development activities to support and educate medical practitioners working in, or with an interest in, palliative medicine.
Our society embraces the definition of Palliative Medicine adopted in Great Britain in 1987. This is quoted in the opening pages in Doyle's Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine - "Palliative Medicine is the study and management of patients with active, progressive, far-advanced disease for whom the prognosis is limited and the focus of care is the quality of life".
