Public Health and Palliative Care Academy

Welcome to the PHPCI Academy from 18-20 October 2024 in MĂĽnchenwiler (close to Bern)

Given the success of and lessons learned the Summer School held prior to the PHPCI conference in Bruge in 2022, a 3-day PHPCI Academy will take place prior to the conference in Bern. The purpose of the Academy is to bring together international experts and junior researchers (potential or present doctoral students, post-docs) of different disciplines active in the field of public health palliative care to share their varied experience in a constructive and innovative atmosphere of knowledge exchange. The goal is to improve present and future research, as well as derive emerging topics and methods to benefit research and education in the field.

We invite junior or early career postdoc researchers to submit a summary abstract about a research challenge in their ongoing projects or projects in planning. These abstracts should provide a short introduction to the project or project idea, including background and when possible, methods used or being considered. The focus of the summary should be on research challenges in the project (practical, methodological or otherwise) that you are interested in discussing—the better the description of challenges, problems or questions, the better able we will be to tailor the Academy to the needs of the attendees.

The final programme will be uploaded by June 2024. Abstract submission is open now until 28 January 2024.
