PCNA 2020 New Dates Announced


22 - 23 November 2020

Due to the evolving global medical crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and its current escalation in Australia, the PCNA 2020 Organising Committee has postponed the conference that was due to take place in May 2020.

This decision was not taken lightly and followed close monitoring of the rising global risk assessment by the World Health Organisation of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Our top priority is the health and well-being of our invited speakers, delegates and conference personnel. 

The conference will now be held on the 22nd - 23rd November 2020, at the Pullman Albert Park. 

The conference website will be updated regularly, please bookmark this site. 

The committee both regrets and apologises for this postponement, but we look forward to seeing you in November!


On behalf of the Organising Committee I am delighted to invite you to the 2020 Palliative Care Nurses Australia Conference. This biennial conference brings together Australian and New Zealand nurses with an interest in delivering high quality, contemporary palliative care.

This two-day conference is the perfect forum for nurses and other health professionals to seek new knowledge, become familiar with new products and services to the industry, and to identify opportunities to translate the best evidence into clinical and academic excellence. Networking, debating and socialising with peers adds a further dimension to the experience. With several plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and workshops, the structure of the conference provides the ideal environment for these activities to occur. The surroundings of Melbourne offer an ideal venue to facilitate a successful conference.
