National Palliative Care Week – 20-26 May
While not always a topic we discuss openly, it is nonetheless important for us to be aware the National Palliative Care Week will be held from 20-26 May 2018.
National Palliative Care Week is an annual awareness raising week organised by Palliative Care Australia. The theme for this year’s National Palliative Care Week is ‘What matters most?’ The theme addresses the need for Australians to plan ahead for their end-of-life care and discuss it with their loved ones and health professionals. This year PCA will highlight how palliative care can help people with a life-limiting illness to have a high quality of life, right to the end of life.
As always these types of events tend to gather momentum as we draw closer to them, so if you have the time the PCA have asked for it’s promotion through our networks to members and colleagues in social media, newsletters, etc.
