As St Columba’s Hospice marks its 40th anniversary, we are thrilled to organise this conference for those working or studying in health and social care. Looking Back, Looking Forward: Marking 40 Years of Palliative Care will be an opportunity to hear from some of palliative care’s top speakers. 

This conference will offer a unique opportunity to engage with the vision of palliative care, reflect on how St Columba’s Hospice has shaped care until now; and share ideas on how palliative care can be developed further.

At Looking Back, Looking Forward: Marking 40 Years of Palliative Care we are delighted to have internationally renowned leaders in the field of palliative care and person-centred care as our key note speakers.
