Palliative Care NSW Volunteer Support Services Programme

Tamworth 25th October – Forum on Experiences around Dying

This Forum aims to bring together palliative care staff and volunteers, pastoral care staff and volunteers and other interested health professionals to talk about experiences around dying. 

Dr Michael Barbato will discuss experiences including dreams, visions/hallucinations, symbolic language, unconsciousness, the moment of death within the context of caring for people at or near the end of their lives.

A Volunteer Workshop will be held in the afternoon for palliative care volunteers. If you are a palliative care volunteer please contact your Volunteer Manager to register.
