Rural & Remote Travel Grant

The Australian and New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine (“ANZSPM”) Rural & Remote Travel Grant was established in 2019 to promote professional education and training for ANZSPM Members in rural and remote locations and to foster excellence in rural and remote practice in Australia and New Zealand. The grant provides financial support to successful applicants to attend a major ANZSPM educational event. Financial support offered by ANZSPM under the grant may be for full or partial funding of the eligible costs of attendance at ANZSPM’s discretion.

Congratulations and a warm #ANZSPM20 welcome are extended to Monica Theron (Northern Territory), Tasmin Coutts (Western Australia) and Samantha Wyton (Tasmania), who are this year’s ANZSPM Rural & Remote Travel Grant recipients.
