Welcome to the 3rd Annual Challenging Topics in Palliative Care: Beyond the Basics. Again we have invited national professional, in the field of palliative medicine to share their expertise across various domains including pharmacotherapy, research findings regarding quality of life at end of life, advanced heart failure and radiological interventions for the palliative patient. A session on Quality Improvement will outline processes that help us evaluate our programs and a session to share what palliative care feels and looks like in Africa will expand our horizons. To end the day, Dr. David Weissman, recently voted one of the Top 30 Visionaries in Hospice and Palliative Care, will share not only some personal experiences that influenced his career but also what palliative care is likely to require of us in the future.
