PCA Connect: Conversations with ‘People at the heart of quality palliative care’

Palliative Care Australia invited palliative care professionals as well as the public to come along to celebrate the vital role of the palliative care workforce in supporting people with life-limiting illnesses. Hosted by palliative care specialist, Joanne Doran, the webinar featured a panel of experts from the palliative care sector that provided an overview of palliative care and its importance. 

The webinar was designed as an ‘ask me anything’ forum where attendees could ask any questions they may be afraid to ask about palliative care. It was an opportunity to learn, interact, and celebrate the palliative care workforce while enjoying a relaxing afternoon tea.
