Why palliative care?

As a society we enjoy living longer lives and experience positive changes in our lifestyle.
On the other hand, there are numerous health conditions that may affect our quality of life and make us seeking help and support.
Part of this picture are terminal illnesses, when a diagnosis is offered but no cure is available for a full recovery. It is usually when palliative care becomes an option to consider…

Why CALD perspectives?

We live in one of most multicultural of countries in the world with a highly diverse population. One in five people in Australia speak a language other than English (LoTE) at home and identify with one of almost three hundred various cultures.

Let us talk:
What is palliative care?
What does it offer?
What are the principles and what difference can it make?

What is available?
Where to start?
… all that you would like to know…

in a conversation with our panellists:

  • Mr Mark Waters, Executive Director, Palliative Care SA
  • Ms Anji Hill, Project Manager, System Design and Planning | System Leadership and Design, Department for Health & Wellbeing

It is the first of the anticipated series of live webinars ‘Palliative Care – CALD perspectives. What we know today can improve what we offer tomorrow’
PICAC SA & Palliative Care SA bring these events to a wide multicultural audience and the invited experts will share their wealth of wisdom.
How does palliative care affect me? Is there anything in it for me? What does culturally appropriate palliative care look like? When does palliative
care start? For whom and why?

… there’s so much we can ask about and discuss in this very broad yet not-so-well-known subject. You are very welcome to put your questions to the panel in the live Q&A.
