Palliative Care – It’s more than you think. – has been created to engage the community in an innovative way about the benefits of palliative care. The multimedia campaign presented by Palliative Care Tasmania, with the support of the Tasmanian Government, seeks to challenge perceptions that palliative care is a ‘last resort’. The campaign aims to empower individuals to engage with their health care professionals early in their diagnosis, in the hope to live as well as possible, for as long as possible.
The campaign includes a suite of resources, created to support people to have those challenging but potentially powerful moments connected to the end-of-life. Resources are available in 11 languages: Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Hindi, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, French, Greek, German, and English.
Palliative care is not just about dying or ‘end of life’. Palliative care helps people live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible when living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Sometimes palliative care can support people for many months or even years. Palliative Care – It’s more than you think is a public health campaign presented by Palliative Care Tasmania with the support of the Tasmanian Government to raise awareness and improve understanding of palliative care in Tasmania.
