Palliative Care Lecture Series

We are delighted to present the Hospice Palliative Care Lecture Series in 2020. This education opportunity is designed for healthcare professionals with an interest in palliative care.

Hospice New Zealand offers access to monthly palliative care lectures, which are delivered across New Zealand by teleconference. Mary Potter Hospice facilitates these lectures in each of its bases and welcomes our partners and community to attend free of charge.

The lectures will be delivered via teleconference with a PowerPoint presentation. The lectures take place on the first Thursday of every month from February to December 2020 from 7.30 to 8.30am.
