Compassionate Communities Symposium
A new collaboration between Palliative Care Australia and The Groundswell Project will bring together world leaders to advance the Compassionate Communities movement in Australia. Supported by the Australian Government, PCA and Groundswell will host a Compassionate Communities Symposium in February 2017.
Compassionate Communities is an international movement that aims to support communities to recognise the needs of people who are approaching the end of their lives, and develop initiatives to support them during this important stage of life.
The Symposium will bring together community leaders from local government, not for profit organisations and community groups to develop ways to support people at the end of their lives.
The keynote speaker at the Symposium will be Dr Julian Abel, a palliative care consultant from the UK, who recently co-authored a guide to help communities develop support networks at the end of life.
When: 20-21 February 2017
