Palliative Care Australia is conducting the National Palliative Care Week between Sunday 25 May, 2014 and Saturday 31 May, 2014 to raise awareness about this growing sector of the health industry. The theme for this year is Palliative Care Everyone’s Business: Let’s Work Together. Palliative Care Australia is inviting everyone, from doctors to specialists, nurses to care givers, volunteers, patients and other health professionals to get involved.
On Thursday 29 May, 2014, an education forum will be held in Canberra. You can attend this event live in Canberra or watch it via webcast. Click here for more details about this event.
Taking the theme ‘Let’s Work Together,’ in word and spirit, Palliative Care Australia is looking to involve as many people from the health and community services industry as possible. One of the focal points of this event is to celebrate the people involved in providing palliative care to patients. The other important aspect is to educate community members about the importance of palliative care.
