This colloquium, jointly convened by the Sydney School of Education and Social Work at the University of Sydney and the Social Work Health Inequalities Network (SWHIN), will bring together practitioners and researchers involved in innovative research and practice addressing diversity and inequality at end-of-life.

It will be of interest to social work and health care practitioners and researchers in fields such as

  • Palliative care

  • Oncology
  • Paediatric palliative care
  • Critical Care
  • Practitioners working in hospitals, community heath centres, policy organisations and community support and advocacy groups
