Thanks for making 2017 National Palliative Care Week a great success!
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 ‘You matter, your care matters. Palliative care can make a difference’.
National Palliative Care Week is a national week supported by the Department of Health to raise awareness and understanding about palliative care in the Australian community.
The theme addresses the need for aged care services to provide palliative care where appropriate.
PCA will highlight how palliative care can help people accessing aged care services to have a high quality of life, right to the end of life.
People in aged care often have more than one chronic illness which affects their health in different ways. Palliative care can help manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
