We are very excited to be holding the 2nd edition of Singapore Palliative Care Quality Improvement Conference (SPCQIC) 2024. Over the last 6 years, the quality improvement landscape in Singapore Palliative Care has changed immensely with the support from Ministry of Health (MOH), Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) and the concerted effort by all the institution providing specialist palliative care. This year’s program will be even more encompassing, as we plan to launch the Generalist and Paediatric Palliative Care guidelines. We look forward to your presence at this amazing conference, where we can share brilliant ideas and learn from the QI gurus from Singapore and overseas.
