Undergraduate Medical Education Special Interest Forum

10th October 2018, University of Liverpool Cancer Research Centre

Theme: The Practicalities of Delivering Palliative Medicine Education


We are pleased to announce the sixth annual meeting of the APM Undergraduate Education Special Interest Forum, co-led by Professor John Ellershaw (Liverpool) and Dr Stephen Barclay (Cambridge).  The meeting presents a much-needed networking opportunity for those involved in the planning and delivery of undergraduate palliative medicine education, and enables the sharing of ideas, developments, best practice and suggestions for education research, and RCP CPD approval is being sought. 

The 2018 spotlight on the practicalities of delivering undergraduate palliative medicine education will explore the differing methods employed around the country and ways in which best practice can be replicated.  Abstract submissions are invited relating to sharing best practice and research and innovation in undergraduate medical education, and an abstract submission form is attached.  There will also be opportunity to work in small groups developing Single Best Answer exam questions for submission to the national question bank; please prepare in advance and bring with you on the day.
