Palliative care helps people live as fully and as comfortably as possible following the diagnosis of a life-limiting, chronic or terminal illness. Palliative care is person-centred care to support people’s quality of life as a result of effective pain and symptom management, and holistic assessment of physical, psychological, social, emotional and spiritual needs including support for family and carers.

Australians have a great attitude to life; we want to bring that same openness and curiosity to how we approach end of life and National Palliative Care Week gives us a chance to explore the thinking and conversations that go with it.

A range of topics will be covered on the day including:

  • What is Palliative Care? What is End-of-Life Care? Is there a difference?
  • Breaking common misconceptions about Palliative Care
  • The importance of Advance Care Planning
  • Grief and Bereavement Support
  • Carer Support Options
  • Palliative Care services in our region
  • A Carer sharing their story of their palliative care journey

The event is being held at Kahibah Sports Club, Kahibah from 9:00am – 12:00pm with a limited number of tickets available. Register yourself and others today by clicking on the REGISTER NOW link below.

A light morning tea and tea and coffee will be provided.
