Palliative Care NSW Volunteer Support Services Programme

Orange 10th October – Forum on Spirituality and Reflective Practice in Palliative Care

Kate Englebrecht will discuss spirituality in the context of caring for people at or near the end of their lives. Kate will also explore reflective practice for practitioners and how meaning is made or formed from our experiences of caring.

This Forum aims to bring together palliative care staff and volunteers, pastoral care staff and volunteers and other interested health professionals to learn, share and reflect.

A Volunteer Workshop will be held in the afternoon for palliative care volunteers. Kerry Frost from NALAG will speak about the diversity of roles for volunteers followed by an interactive panel discussion. The panel will cover topics such as the importance of partnerships in care and invite palliative care volunteers to share their experiences around the greatest contributions they have made and the biggest challenges they have faced.
