This full day seminar, in National Palliative Care Week, will focus on how professionals, volunteers and family can support those in the last part of their lives by being a ‘friend of the dying’.
The keynote presenter is Dr Michael Barbato, a retired palliative care physician, educator and author. Further presentations will be from carers and professionals with day-to-day experience supporting those towards the end of their lives. Topics include an overview of advanced care directives, the important role of volunteer support, pastoral care and cross-cultural considerations. A highlight of the day will be a performance from the Threshold Choir.
