We would like to invite you all to the 5th International Conference on Advance Care Planning and End of Life Care, to be held on September 9-12, 2015, at the University of Munich (LMU).
Advance care planning (ACP) as a means to promote patient-centered care continues to gain increasing importance in almost all medical fields and care settings. As an ongoing, life-long communication process facilitated by skilled personnel, ACP is an innovative, effective approach eventually ensuring that when patients are no longer able to make their own medical decisions their treatment wishes are known and honored.
We seek to bring together practitioners, researchers, ethicists and policy makers from various countries around the world to make ACPEL 2015 a stimulating forum to gain new ideas and insights on how to develop, implement and improve ACP.
Please go to www.acpel2015.org and find out more about the conference. You can submit abstracts for oral or poster presentations until February 15, 2015. Registration fees will be modest with substantially reduced rates for non-academic health care professionals and students.
We look forward to welcoming you in Munich! For the organizing team,
Ralf Jox and Georg Marckmann
