APCA Conference

We are delighted to announce that we will be participating in the 7th International African Palliative Care Conference co-hosted by the African Palliative Care Association (APCA) and the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA). It is co-sponsored by the IAHPC, ICPCN, Global Partners in Care and PallCHASE.

The conference will be a hybrid (physical and virtual) event that will take place from 24-26 August 2022. The virtual activities will be run on an online platform that will be accessible to all registered delegates while the physical sessions will happen in Kampala, Uganda.

The conference theme, Palliative Care in a Pandemic, reflects both the current reality of palliative care provision on the continent, the experiences of patients and providers over the last 2 years and the projected risks of emerging infectious diseases in Africa in the future.

James (the founder of MyWishes) will be speaking about areas relating to technology, end of life planning and bereavement .

He will be participating in a pre-conference, Digital Health workshop on the 23rd August. The title for this talk is ‘The importance of planning for death digitally and grieving online‘. This paper will explore the impact modern day communication technologies on society and how professionals can provide person-centred care based on the devices and services someone uses.

On the 25th August, James will explore how compassion can be integrated into communities by utilising digital technologies. It will draw upon work designed and delivered by both MyWishes and other ‘tech for good’ organisations. The conference programme can be found here
