STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES ON THE NEW DATES
Each year, the Parkes Palliative Care Volunteer Service hosts a seminar relevant to caring roles at end of life. The target audience is volunteers and managers of volunteers, and more broadly anyone with an interest in or working in palliative care is welcome.
Over the last year or so, Western NSW has gained five new palliative care volunteer services which operate in Grenfell, Dubbo, Mudgee, Orange and Coonabarabran. New volunteers and their managers would especially benefit from attending. It is a fantastic opportunity to connect with peers and engage in some valuable professional development.
This year the event will be held on Friday April 3. The theme is ‘The Cost of Caring’ and it will be facilitated by Beate Steller and Lita Mathews who bring their wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Read their bios here.
Beate and Lita will give attendees an opportunity to take some time out and reflect on the important work they undertake as volunteers or other workers in palliative care.
The day will be interactive and engage volunteers and health professionals in practical activities that promote reflection and growth in their role.
The challenges that lead to compassion fatigue will be examined, and how to move from this fatigue and vicarious trauma to strengthen and grow.
