Palliative care for Aboriginal Health Workers

 

Overview

This one day workshop is designed to build knowledge and skills to provide palliative and supportive care for individuals and their families dealing with chronic or advanced illness. The workshop will focus on the palliative approach, symptom management, spirituality, and loss and grief. The workshop is aimed at Aboriginal Health Workers, Aboriginal liaison officers, interpreters or health workers that care for Aboriginal people. It will be presented by Joylene Koolmatrie a descendant of the Ngarrindjeri and Kayteye people in South Australia. She is now based in Perth, and works primarily with Aboriginal people delivering psychological services in the area of loss, grief and trauma.
