Newsletter September 2017

Dear Readers,

Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere is coming to a close; fall is knocking at the door. I admit to being a little envious when I think that spring is about to begin in New Zealand. I extend my warmest greetings to you, dear colleagues in New Zealand.

At the academy, the month of September is brimming with events. One special highlight will be the Members’ Conference of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Palliativmedizin (German Association for Palliative Medicine), which will be held in Münster on September 15 and 16. I will provide a short overview of this event in the “Expanding horizons” section. However, alongside this look ahead, I will also make space for a wonderful midsummer experience. This year, our staff party took place on a ship. You will find some pictures of our trip under “Day-to-day work at the hospice.”

Wishing you the contentment of carefree days from the bottom of my heart,


Andreas Stähli
