Thurs@3 S2E12 – HELPing communities support people at end of life
Today, a deep dive into the Healthy End of Life Program or HELP for short run out of La Trobe University’s Public Health Palliative Care Unit.
HELP’s mission is to develop a collaborative end-of-life culture to meet people’s health and social needs – tapping into the capacity of community networks to add weight to care of health professionals and meeting the needs of palliative care patients and their families.
The HELP App which has launched in the last year is just part of the scaffolding around the program.
Dr Andrea Grindrod, is the Director of the Public Health Palliative Care Unit at La Trobe and brings professional and very personal perspectives to her work and leadership of the HELP program.
Andrea will be at the Oceanic Palliative Care Conference next week in Sydney but is keen to start a conversation with you now.
