Thurs@3 S1E1 – In conversation with the NSW Senior Australian of the Year 2023
Join us as we open up the conversation about the last taboo – death and dying. We know it’s a difficult conversation to have with yourself and your loved ones, but it’s a crucial and empowering one to have.
Thursdays@3 is our new podcast & video series, where we’ll be talking to experts from the field and people living and working at the end of life. Whether you’re someone who works in palliative care, have a loved one going through palliative care, are bereaved, or if you’re the one living with a life limiting illness this podcast is for you.
In our first episode, listen to a pioneer of modern palliative care in Australia, the NSW Senior Australian of the Year 2023 – Teresa Plane.
From opening a hospice and palliative care unit at Mt Carmel Hospital in Western Sydney in 1978 to launching a home care program, Teresa continues advocating and volunteering as she approaches 90 years, and in this conversation reflects on what she has learnt about life and death along the way. You are in the presence of greatness as you click play; prepare to go on a journey.
