2023 Tasmanian Palliative Care Awards
Palliative Care Tasmania, the peak body for palliative and end-of-life care, is thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2023 Tasmanian Palliative Care Awards. These awards recognise individuals and organisations that have displayed outstanding dedication and innovation in the field of palliative care, providing support to thousands of Tasmanians.
Her Excellency the Honourable Barbara Baker AC and Emeritus Professor Don Chalmers AO hosted 100 finalists and invited guests at Government House in Hobart for the announcement the 2023 finalists and winners.
Ms. Veney Hiller, the CEO of Palliative Care Tasmania, took the opportunity to commend the broader palliative care community in Tasmania.
“We extend our sincerest gratitude to all healthcare professionals, community organisations, volunteers, caregivers, and advocates working tirelessly in our sector assisting people with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones to live, die and grieve well.
While there are many public services provided to improve the lives of Tasmanians, palliative care is the only sector that is dedicated to helping Tasmanians have a good death” she said.
Ms. Hiller congratulated to all the nominees, finalists and winners
“By recognising the depth and breadth of people and organisations that support dying Tasmanians, we give visibility to what can sometimes be an invisible workforce. We are thrilled we can take this time, once a year, to thank just a small handful of these wonderful people” she said.
