National Palliative Care Week – community information session
National Palliative Care Week (#NPCW), held from 22 – 28 May 2022, is Australia’s largest annual awareness-raising initiative held to increase understanding of the many benefits of palliative care.
The theme, It’s Your Right, seeks to raise awareness about the rights of all Australians to access high-quality palliative care when and where they need it. Anyone with a life-limiting illness has the right to live as well as possible, for as long as possible.
The free two-hour community information sessions bring together specialist services who will talk to you about a range of end-of-life considerations and be on hand to answer all your questions. Speakers vary at each event but may include:
Council of the Ageing (Aged Care navigation and elder issues)
Services Australia (Centrelink issues and finances)
TPT Wealth (Estate planning)
Li-Ve Tasmania (Healthy Dying)
CANTEEN ( Support for young people )
Legal Aid ( Legal end of life issues )
& Palliative Care.
This is a great opportunity for Volunteers and Carers to receive a 2-hour training session
