The Digital Legacy Conference 2019

The Digital Legacy Conference 2019 will take place at the 16th World Congress of the European Association of Palliative Care 


As an EAPC badge holder you will automatically be able to attend. Those not attending EAPC will also be able to attend the Digital Legacy Conference. The scientific programme and a limited number of tickets (for non-EAPC badge holders) can be found here.

We look forward to seeing you in Berlin.
