The theme for 2017's National Palliative Care Week was ‘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.
