2022 Tasmanian Palliative Care Awards and 2022 Tasmanian Palliative Care Honour Roll
Palliative Care Tasmania (PCT), the state’s peak body for palliative care are delighted to announce the winners of the sixth annual Tasmanian Palliative Care Awards.
CEO of Palliative Care Tasmania Colleen Johnstone says
It is wonderful to see so many contributions being recognised, this year we have had a record number of nominations from every corner of the state, King Island to Huonville, Scottsdale to Swansea. The judging panel had a very difficult time.
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 and volunteer network. We are thrilled we can take this time, once a year, to thank just a small handful of these wonderful people.
On Tuesday the 9th August, at Government House Tasmania, her Excellency the Honourable Barbara Baker AC and Emeritus Professor Don Chalmers AO hosted 18 finalists across six and 80 invited guests for the announcement of the 2022 Tasmanian Palliative Care Award winners and 2022 and Tasmanian Palliative Care Honour Roll inductees.
The 2022 Tasmanian Palliative Care Awards are the only awards that recognise compassion and excellence in Palliative Care across the state. The Awards acknowledge the many selfless individuals and organisations assisting people with a life-limiting illness to live, die and grieve well.
