National Hospice Symposium QLD

Date: Friday 15 March 2019

Time: 8:30 am – 3:30 pm AEST

Venue: Gold Coast Hospital Education Centre, Southport, QLD 4222

Hospice care is a style of care, rather than something that takes place in a specific building. It seeks to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of adults and children with life-limiting conditions, by honouring the diversity and uniqueness of each individual, with a goal to help them live as fully as they can for the precious time they have left.

Hospices are managed by Non Government Organisations, as a service they specialise in palliative care. Their model of care is community based – thereby care is provided either in the person’s home or in a home-style facility so that all family members can be active participants in their care, and includes bereavement follow up. Some hospices provide a day respite model of care.

This Symposium is for anyone who would like to:

  • Increase their understanding of hospice models and what hospices are doing nationally

  • Learn how to start a Hospice

  • Network with like-minded teams and services

  • Understand fundraising strategies

This Symposium is open to Hospice Staff | Managers | Fundraising Teams | Hospice Board/Committee Members | Volunteers | GP’s | Researchers | Organisations with an interest in developing a Hospice | Anyone with an interest in Hospice Care
