We are thrilled to be holding our first Education Day since 2019. Please join us for a day of learning and networking, face-to-face with your friends and colleagues.

About this event
National Palliative Care Week (NPCW), held from 22 – 28 May 2022, is Australia’s largest annual awareness-raising initiative held to increase understanding of the many benefits of palliative care.

The theme “it’s your right” seeks to raise awareness about the rights of all Australians to access high-quality palliative care when and where they need it. Anyone with a life-limiting illness has the right to live as well as possible, for as long as possible.  This is what we will be focusing on during Education Day 2022.

Refreshments and lunch will be served
