National Palliative Care Week has officially launched!
Her Excellency the Honourable Barbara Baker AC, Governor of Tasmania, and Emeritus Professor Don Chalmers AO, graciously opened their home to us and officially launched National Palliative Care Week and the 2023 Tasmaniaan Palliative Care Awards.
Quality of life, at the end of life, depends not only on high-quality clinical care but also on the strength of communities and the circles of support. This event was an opportunity to shine a light on the people at the heart of quality palliative care and to provide an occasion for connection and collaboration. We also heard from the irrepressible Jill Savell, former carer and nurse, who shared her experiences as a person with a life-limiting illness.
“Work together, never stop the conversation, never stop the collaboration. Never stop advocating an never stop connecting.” Venéy Hiller Acting CEO Palliative Care Tasmania.
