Thank you to all delegates and speakers who participated in this successful conference. We hope you had an informative and educational week.
On behalf of the Asia Pacific Coroners' Society, I invite you to attend our annual conference for 2012, from 20 -23 November. The conference itself will be held at the Amora Hotel, Jamison St, Sydney with social events organised at the Opera House and the MCA nearby.
Everyone with an interest in coronial matters is welcome. Coroners and staff, pathologists and other medical experts, minority groups, police, counsellors and lawyers will all, I think, find sessions of interest in the programme. Coronial practice is becoming of increasing interest to our community and attracting more and more media attention, whether we like it or not.
In a civilised society, we are more and more open to comment and scrutiny. It is hoped that this conference will provide information, workshops and challenges to continue to meet those demands and to treat the dead and the bereaved with the dignity and investigation they deserve.
Magistrate Mary Jerram
State Coroner - New South Wales.
