400 international conferences participants at the bmcc

400 conferences participants from all over the world at het BMCC for the 4 day phpci-conference

From 20 to 23 September, a total of 400 conferences participants from all over the world found their way to the BMCC. The whole convention centre – the auditorium, the 12 meeting rooms and the catering area – was used for the conference.

The focus of the 7th Public Health Palliative Care International Conference was upon the dialogue between science and citizens concerning the democratisation of palliative and end-of-life care. Death, suffering and grieving are often taboo subjects in our society. This conference sought to identify a solution to this issue – how can compassionate communities, such as Compassionate Bruges, help to break through this taboo and make sure that serious illness, family care, dying and grieving appear higher up policymakers’ agendas?
