Collaborations in Palliative Care
ABOUT THE 15th MALAYSIAN HOSPICE COUNCIL CONGRESS 2024
The Malaysian Hospice Council is the umbrella body of hospice and palliative care organizations in Malaysia. It was set up in 1996 and currently has 27 organizations as members. The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) Sarawak Branch is a member of the Council.
The Congress began in Penang in 1996, as a two-day scientific meeting hosted by The National Cancer Society of Malaysia Penang. Since then, the meeting has been held biennially in various parts of Malaysia. The Malaysian Hospice Council Congress is now the leading national forum for healthcare professionals, community volunteers and lay individuals in the field of hospice and palliative care in Malaysia.
It is our great pleasure to heartily invite everyone – health professionals, caregivers, volunteers, policy makers and others – to come together to connect and collaborate with friends and colleagues, to strengthen our ties and commitment for Palliative Care Malaysia and beyond. MHCC2024 – our first physical meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic, embraces you with open arms!
It will be a wonderful opportunity for all participants to get updates on hospice and palliative care, to meet up with old friends, to make new friends, to network and of course, to savour the rich diversity of our food and culture and enjoy the beauty of Sarawak!
We look forward to welcoming all participants to the 15th Malaysian Hospice Council Congress in Sibu from 25th to 27th July 2024!
