Erina Volunteer Services Forum

The latest Volunteer Services Forum was held in Erina on the Central Coast last week with a good turn-out and a mix of volunteers and health professionals.

Kate Munro, Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Consultant and End of Life Care Coordinator with Hunter New England Health, engaged the group in the theme, ‘Life, the Universe and Everything. What matters Most?’

Kate provided observations into palliative care with poignant, stimulating questions that may assist in conversations with clients.

‘This was an opportunity to increase awareness, both of self and of issues related to death and dying.’ commented one attendee.

Thanks to Kate Bowman and Kami Dibden for organising the event and to the Erina Library and staff for their support.

    Thank you. Where can I get a copy of the poignant, stimulating questions that may assist with conversation with clients?

    Hi Vera,
    Kate let me know they come from a program in Scotland called My Home Life – if you google it you can then access the resources page and select The Key Jar Question Cards.
