Our Palliative Care Volunteer Quiz series was published early in 2017 and has so far attracted 160 downloads.
Our research reports have also attracted some 200 downloads across: Paediatric hospice volunteering; the views of Service Development Officers of volunteers; the experience of other non-palliative care volunteers working with people at or near end of life; the life and death of a palliative care volunteer service in the bush; our reviews of volunteer-led community Hospice; and aged care, palliative care and volunteering.
Since 2014 the Volunteer Support Services Programme has studied, reported on, blogged about and developed resources to address the experiences and challenges of the 1600 or so palliative care volunteers in NSW on VolunteerHub and our followers include people in the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, South Africa, Qatar, Jordan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China and Australia.
