Online Abstract Submission - Deadline May 24, 2023

Supporting patients and their families throughout their illness trajectory is challenging. Increasing our understanding of a person’s unique journey contributes to a person and family centered approach to care.  Improving personalization and honoring people where they are at, enhances overall quality of care and life, decreases suffering, and may even extend survival.  
Through trust, knowledge, communication, compassionate care and awareness of social, cultural and individual factors, health care providers can facilitate an environment that respects, responds, values and embraces diversity and individual preferences.  Caregiver awareness and understanding of various social determinants of health (including race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and other factors affecting the person) will both impact and influence patient-provider interactions, clinical decision making and individual interpretations of life, death, dying and bereavement.
Caring for people and their communities is at the heart of what we do.  Join us in sharing your clinical and research insights into how we can improve palliative care to more fully honor individuals and communities. 

We invite clinicians, students and faculty to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations related to Palliative & End of Life Care.
