Stephen Connor of WHPCA and Katherine Pettus of IAHPC led advocacy for palliative care in dementia at the World Health Assembly, on 28 May, 2016, when the WHA resolution progress report was discussed.

“Dementia care at the end of life is increasingly being studied as the different courses of patient deterioration warrant dementia-specific palliative care strategies and treatment decisions more frequently need to consider co-morbid disease.”

On behalf of the whole world, Stephen and Katherine, thank you for all that you are doing.
