At this year’s APM Juniors Conference 2019 we held a competition to allow medical students to combine their interest in palliative care with their creativity.
This year our theme was “Symptoms in Palliative Care”. The competition was kindly supported by Dr. Barclay (Honorary Consultant Physician in Palliative Care, General Practitioner and University Senior Lecturer in General Practice and Palliative Care, University of Cambridge).
We invited students from medical schools across the UK to submit a short story, reflection, poem or piece of artwork. From some fantastic entries, we shortlisted 6 winners whose entries will be showcased throughout our upcoming monthly blogs.
