The aim of this 2-day advanced course is to provide delegates with an up-to-date, evidence-based review of the management of pain and other common symptoms / problems. The topics have been chosen because of their impact on the patients’ quality of life, and the lecturers chosen because of their knowledge of the subject matter. The lectures will be supplemented with relevant reading materials, including slide presentations, and a detailed reference / reading list.
The course has been developed to address the educational needs of Clinical Nurse Specialists in Palliative Care, Specialty Trainees in Palliative Medicine, and Consultants in Palliative Medicine. The course organizers are Prof Andrew Davies (Professor of Palliative Medicine, Dublin), and Dr Andrew Dickman (Consultant Pharmacist, Liverpool).
The Dublin Advanced Course is based on the Guildford Advanced Course (United Kingdom), although the content may vary in terms of lectures / lecturers. Confirmed speakers for the Dublin Advanced Course include Dr Andrew Dickman, Prof Andrew Davies, Dr Paul Farquhar-Smith, Dr Mike Lucey, Dr Anna Karenia-Anderson, Prof Paddy Stone, Lindsay Allen, Craig Gouldthorpe, Prof Mari Lloyd-Williams, Jason Boland, Prof Simon Noble, Jo Thompson and Bernard Ho.
