This symposium will be held at the Museum of Natural Sciences, Brussels on Friday 30 September 2016.
It will feature international experts as keynote speakers : Prof. David Currow (Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia), and Prof. Philip Larkin (President of the European Association for Palliative Care, University College Dublin, Ireland).
