PaCCSC and CST Annual Research Forum 2021
The PaCCSC and CST Annual Research Forum is our principal annual event. Past forums have supported new study ideas, provided networking opportunities and forged new collaborations.
We’re back in 2021 with the theme Clinical trials in a changing world.
Don’t miss out on the chance to brainstorm your ideas with leaders in palliative care and cancer symptom management.
This is your opportunity to hear from and network with national and international clinical trials experts including our keynote speaker, Dr R. Sean Morrison, Director of the National Palliative Care Research Center in New York.
The program includes Q&A for all attendees after each presentation.
Exclusive small talk sessions will also be available for early- and mid-career researchers, to draw on the experience of our guest speakers.
