Whiria ngā tāngata, Weave the people together is the premier conference of 2020 for any health professional involved in palliative care.

Whiria ngā tāngata honours the concept that we must all weave together in partnership to ensure the best outcome for people who are dying.  There is a role for a range of health care services and professions in and around a person’s end of life journey, supporting the person and their family, whānau and the wider community both before and after death.

During Conference 2020 you’ll be encouraged to think about how we can weave people and services together to ensure equity of access whilst also considering how our services reflect and support the diversity of the people requiring end of life care.

Our keynote speakers will include:

Heather Richardson
Joint Chief Executive, St Christopher’s Hospice, London, UK.

Merryn Gott
Professor of Health Sciences, The University of Auckland, NZ.

Dr David Jansen
Clinical Director, National Hauora Coalition and General Practitioner, Auckland, NZ.
