Facing the Elephant in the Room – Preparing for end of life

We recently invited the community to suggest some topics that are traditionally difficult to speak about or seldom discussed with the treating team. The overwhelming response to this survey was for a seminar discussing the role of palliative care and what happens at the end of life for those with myeloma. We have carefully selected a group of expert speakers and topics to hopefully improve your understanding of this extremely sensitive information.

We recommend watching this seminar with a support person if possible. If you would like to discuss the content before or after the event, please don’t hesitate to contact our Myeloma Support Nurses on our Telephone Support Line:
1800 693 566 Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm AEDT

This online seminar will be live streamed from our website. There will be the ability to send questions to the speakers via an online form under the video box.
