Study of community volunteers reveals need for palliative care training

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.

In 2016 PCNSW Policy Officer Kate Bowman undertook a study of a small sample of volunteer managers of community volunteer groups in NSW about their volunteer’s experience with and training in palliative care.
