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 ‘What matters most?’ and it will be held 20-26 May 2018.
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 Australians to plan ahead for their end-of-life care and discuss it with their loved ones and health professionals.
PCA will highlight how palliative care can help people with a life-limiting illness to have a high quality of life, right to the end of life.
