Join us to hear insights of our history, and reflection on our future in palliative care, shared by one of the world pioneers in the field.

We welcome Dr Robert Twycross who is visiting from Oxford University. Drawing on his enormous experience of establishing palliative care as a discipline in the UK and from his work globally, he will talk of the challenges and achievements of the past, and offer thoughts for what may be the key issues in the future.
