2022 Palliative Care Summit - 'Awesome' response from participants

Doing Death Differently brought together palliative care, aged care and community service professionals, researchers, volunteers, policy makers, students, carers and community members to discuss future priorities for quality palliative care in WA and the day was a huge success.

In-the-room feedback was overwhelmingly positive as the sea of ‘Awesome’ cards showed.

A report on the Summit is available HERE. To view some of the available presentations from the day visit HERE.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all the presenters, participants, facilitators and our very generous sponsors.

Doing Death Differently was organised by Palliative Care WA and funded by WA Health’s End-of-life Care Program.

In addition to generous sponsorship from Richard Lockwood, and in-kind support from Carers WA, the summit was sponsored by the following organisations – to which we say a huge thank you!
