Welcome to Palliativecare Conferences

Palliativecare Conferences is a multidisciplinary approach to specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis. The goal of such therapy is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliativecare is provided by a team of physicians, nurses, and other health professionals who work together with the primary care physician and referred specialists to provide an extra layer of support. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment.

OMICS International Organises 3000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 50000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board members.

OMICS International conferences in the field of Palliative care provides a platform for clinicians, researchers, surgeons, Physicians and health practitioners as well as industrial leaders to participate their views at our Palliative care conferences. OMICS International is conducting palliative care conferences every year in the areas like Aging, GeriatricsGeriatric Medicine and Palliativecare.

Palliativecare focuses on weakening the pain, symptoms, physical and mental stress that a seriously ill patient goes through while being treated. The goal of the care is to help people who are dying have peace, comfort, and dignity. The caregivers try to control pain and other symptoms so a person can remain as alert and comfortable as possible thus providing some sort of relief to the persons’ family too.

Geriatricsis the branch of medicine or social science dealing with the health and care of old people. The aim of the Geriatrics conference is to improve the quality of life of the world’s older people by sharing research results on health, welfare, and rights, functioning as a worldwide network to achieve the goal. The standard aims to support hospitals and community services to help improve the quality of life of older people and reduce the number of fall-related injuries occurring in people aged 65 and older. The conference will also discuss key elements in the reduction of falls in your organisation including underlying health issues, falls and mental health, medicines management, comorbidity and managing falls in the over 85s. There will be a focus session on reducing inpatient falls and undertaking effective root cause analysis.

Aging is the process of growing old or developing the appearance and characteristics of old age and study of the biology of ageing is one of the most challenging areas of biomedical research. Research on aging summarises some of the possible mechanisms by which ageing occurs which includes the cell senescence and telomere shortening; environmental and oxidative stress and the influence of nutrient availability on the biochemical pathways that control cell division and metabolism. The demands on the aging research community are growing with public need and aging conference will help us meet this challenge and try to accelerate the development of solutions able to extend the healthy years of life as well as will look at many facets of research and processes that are involved in ageing and senescence.

A World Health Organization statement describes palliative care as "an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual." More generally, however, the term "palliative care" may refer to any care that alleviates symptoms, whether or not there is hope of a cure by other means; thus, palliative treatments may be used to alleviate the side effects of curative treatments, such as relieving the nausea associated with chemotherapy. The term "palliative care" is increasingly used with regard to diseases other than cancer such as chronic, progressive pulmonary disorders, renal disease, chronic heart failure, HIV/AIDS and progressive neurological conditions

According to some surveys by 2020, the number of people living with at least one chronic illness will increase to 157 million. Today, seven out of 10 Americans die from chronic disease. Approximately 68 percent of Medicare costs are related to patients with four or more chronic conditions — the typical palliative care patients. The costs of critical care for patients with chronic disease and multi-organ failure — mainly the elderly and those for whom death is a common but not an immediate outcome — are exceedingly high. The top 5 percent of such patients account for nearly half of health care spending and the cost per capita for 1 percent of such patients is $90,000 compared with $236 per capita for the bottom 50 percent.

OMICS Group Healthcare Conferences includes effectual keynote lectures from Health Care professional and serve as a platform between health care professionals and scientists or researchers. “Research and Diagnostics which provide a forum for academia, industry, regulators and researchers to come together to discuss the new environment for health care product development the challenges and the opportunities”.

OMICS Group International Conferences provides infinite scope for associations by assembling academicians from well-known universities and top level industrialists from business groups to network on a same platform creating a channel for mutual associations and partnerships. These conferences are a major avenue for young and talented students to advance their career prospects by interacting with distinguished scientific professionals across the globe.

Scope and Importance of Palliative Care:
The  Palliative Care Centers industry has grown rapidly for more than a decade, aided by continued Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement support, an aging US population, rising healthcare costs and a general trend toward at-home end-of-life care. “The industry continued growing straight through the economic downturn as relevant funding grew and the number of facilities offering hospice and palliative services did as well,” said IBIS World industry analyst Brian Bueno. IBIS World estimates 7,789 facilities will operate in the industry in 2012, generating $18.9 billion in revenue. In 2012 alone, revenue is expected to jump 8.4%, marking an annualized rate of growth of 9.8% since 2007.
Over the past decade, the number of Americans seeking hospice care has continued to increase dramatically. According to the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, approximately 41.9% of all 2010 deaths in the United States were under the care of a hospice program. Furthermore, of all Medicare decedents in 2001, 18.8% accessed hospice for three or more days. By 2007, the proportion of Medicare decedents accessing three or more days of hospice services had increased to 30.1%. Aiding such growth has been the rising number of Americans aged 65 and older those are Medicare eligible. Over the five years to 2012, funding for Medicare is projected to increase at an average annual rate of 4.4% to $761.4 billion. Similarly, over that period, the share of US population aged 65 and over jumped from 12.6% to 13.6% as that age group grew faster than the general population.

The Palliative Care Centers industry is anticipated to continue growing strongly through 2017. According to Bueno, demand will escalate along with the acceleration in the proportion of the population aged 65 and older, and the subsequent rapid growth in the number of Medicare recipients. Nevertheless, growth is expected to remain below its potential over the next five years because of impending cuts to hospice reimbursement rates.
