Are we involving schools enough in information about Palliative Care? If not how do we best engage with schools and liaise with clinicians to share the word? Cristina and Jacob are tackling these and other questions in the Palliative Care in Schools project as part of their Bachelor of Health (Macquarie University) placement. By the end of the Semester we should know a lot more about the how and who and what of school engagement and have some practical resources to make it easier for volunteer services to follow a similar path of awareness raising in school communities.
