Community volunteers and end of life

  • by Volunteer Hub
  • March 23, 2016

Volunteers work with some of our most vulnerable people. We see them in the streets, in our homes and our shopping malls. They might deliver meals, provide a listening ear, attend a youth camp or visit aged care homes. They probably don’t think of themselves as palliative care volunteers, but they might be working with people who need palliative care. Kate Bowman is studying the training given to community volunteers to see how we can improve their literacy about palliative care. She will be contacting volunteer services to find answers to the question ‘would your volunteers benefit from training in palliative care?’ Kate is currently studying social science at Macquarie University and is undertaking an internship with Palliative Care NSW.
