Have you got a story to tell about your experiences in the world of palliative care volunteering? Has your service run a program you’d like to tell everyone about? Got some information you think we could all benefit from hearing?

We’d love to hear about it at the 2019 NSW Palliative Care Volunteer Conference.

This year the theme is “Relationships in Palliative Care: A therapeutic alliance”. Key speakers will explore palliative care, trauma, resilience, art, expression, biography, memories, and what it means to offer someone support. How does hope bring support to a person, help them cope better, find new meanings in relationships? Where do volunteers fit into this care team for people approaching their end of life?

You might like to think about speaking under the broad umbrellas of self-care, language, story-telling or community. Presentations can be made individually or in small groups.

Anyone is welcome to submit an abstract – volunteers, Volunteer Managers, even people outside of NSW.

Get your thinking caps on and send us your abstract by 5pm on Monday March 18. Click here for more information on how to submit.
