Palliative care is an integral part of the healthcare system and it is important to understand where it fits. As part of National Palliative Care Week, Palliative Care Australia is presenting an education forum at Parliament House in Canberra which will discuss the key issues and opportunities currently facing the palliative care sector.
The day will cover diverse and important topics and is a must attend for any health professional or policy maker who cares about high quality healthcare.
The theme for national palliative care week is Palliative care is everyone's business: Let's work together. This theme will be used as a starting point for the education forum.
The event will ask big questions about how to deliver palliative care in a challenging panel session. What are the barriers to making palliative care everyone's business and how to break them down? This session will ask leading figures in the health sector to comment on palliative care from their perspective and give you the chance to have your say.
It will also be addressing the topic of cultural safety and will have a number of presenters discussing this from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans/transgender intersex people (LGBTI) and multicultural communities.
The forum will also include an update on palliative care education and will look at palliative care on the international stage - what is the intersection between palliative care and human rights and how is the World Health Assembly involved?
