PHPC Ambassadors Network

  • by Kate Bowman
  • February 17, 2022

Public Health Palliative Care (PHPC) involves action to change the social, political and environmental determinants of health that negatively impact on a person’s health and wellbeing. It promotes action through clinical care as well as cross-sector collaboration with allied health, other professionals and the community.  PHPC supports a person-centred process, enabling people to increase their own control over their end of life experience.

The Ambassadors Network aims to link formal and informal alliance networks for a more integrated approach to PHPC. The program fosters leadership and relationships as an ongoing network for cross-sector collaboration. The aim is for the network to support its members in their place of work and community, on the choice and delivery of evidenced-based palliative care projects, resources and information.

Anyone in clinical and allied health, or who works or volunteers in the palliative care community can become a PHPC Ambassador.

To find out more, contact Linda Hansen, CEO Palliative Care NSW.
