The provision of high quality care to older people with complex healthcare needs brings a unique set of clinical and ethical issues. This symposium explored a range of challenging topics which often confront clinicians. It aimed to increase knowledge of symptom control in complex conditions, improve confidence in decision-making regarding difficult ethical situations, and to provide a better understanding of how to organise and support end of life care both in the hospital and in the community.
