National Palliative Care Week


Sunday 25 May – Saturday 31 May 2014

The theme for National Palliative Care Week 2014 is Palliative care everyone's business: Let's work together

This year, we're celebrating the people who work in palliative care and the important role they play in ensuring quality care at the end of life for all.

We want to educate the community about all of the different people involved in palliative care and encourage people to think about what their role may be.
