Deputy director of policy analysis and community engagement at the Lien Centre for Palliative Care.

What are you most looking forward to about the conference?

I’m looking forward to listening to speakers, especially the plenaries. To making meaningful connections with fellow hospice and palliative care professionals in the Asia Pacific region.

How to you think that this conference will drive palliative care forward in the region?

Firstly, it will increase the bank of knowledge among the attendees. Secondly, it will encourage more synergy and cooperation between the healthcare professionals and organisations who are present.

We need to find more ways of working together. We need to learn from each other; other people are doing things that may be similar to our own projects, we need to learn from and build on this experience, rather than duplicate activities.
