The 2022 conference of Public Health Palliative Care International will be hosted at the brand-new Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre. The event aims to put severe illnesses, voluntary healthcare, death and loss high on the agenda of policymakers.
“In the last few months, the local administration, healthcare and welfare associations, workplaces, schools, religious communities and local neighbourhoods have all joined forces to open up discussion about these themes in various places, in various organizations and on various moments. High-quality care, even in the final life phase, has always been the main concern of (associations like) Compassionate Bruges. The expert knowledge that will be brought to Bruges during this conference will definitely allow us to focus on this even more in the future. We look forward to being the first Compassionate City in Belgium to welcome this conference,” said Alderman for Social Affairs Pablo Annys.
