2024 East Coast Palliative Care Conference

Updated: Jun 10

Recently, our organisational member YOKUK organised the 2024 East Coast Palliative Care Conference. With the theme Palliative Care Without Borders, the conference attracted hundreds of participants with its advanced approach of combining physical and online talks and participants.

Datin Suliana Shamsuddin Alias (Executive Director of YOKUK) highlighted YOKUK's achievements over the last 25 years and the event was then officiated by YTM. Tunku Puan Sri Dato' Hajjah Nor Hayati binti Al-Marhum Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj (Tengku Puan Temenggong Kelantan).

MHPCC was very much supportive of the event to foster the growth of hospice and palliative care services in the state of Kelantan and the East Coast specifically and also for the whole of Malaysia. Our Chairperson, Dr. Ng Woon Fang and Board Member (also the Head of Palliative Medicine Subspecialty for Ministry of Health Malaysia) Dr. Richard Lim Boon Leong attended and spoke at the conference.

The conference also featured esteemed local speakers such as Dr. Fahisham Taib (Senior Lecturer and Paediatrician HUSM) and Dr. Ahmad Fahmi Md Sahray (Spirituality and Health Unit, Hospital Sungai Buloh) with international speakers including Dr. Kathryn Mannix (United Kingdom) and Prof. Hu Wen Yu (Taiwan).

MHPCC also took the opportunity to promote our publications, especially the 2nd Edition of the Handbook of Palliative Medicine in Malaysia and also the upcoming 15th Malaysian Hospice Council Congress that will be held in Sibu from 25th - 27th July 2024.

We hope for more events like this and for those of you wanting more opportunities like this, come and join us in Sibu!

Congratulations YOKUK on the success of 2024 East Coast Palliative Care Conference!
