Grundet COVID-19 er symposiet udskudt til foråret 2021


At this interdisciplinary DSPCC symposium international researchers and key persons will introduce and discuss the clinical perspective of both the medical and supportive care give to children and their families during a palliative stadium. The program is based on the four focus areas recommended by the Danish Health Authority; oncology, neurology, organ failure and neonatology. However, ethical and psychological perspectives will be transverse through the program. 

The symposium is an opportunity to interact with experts in the field and build partnerships with colleagues from Denmark and internationally on this important topic.
