Understanding Palliative Care – families, friends and carers

Understanding Palliative Care is an online forum suitable for families, friends and carers of people with a chronic disease or terminal illness.

  • Thursday 28 May 10–11:30am

This forum aims to increase your understanding of what is involved in Palliative Care, and what it can look and feel like for you as well as for the person you are supporting. We will also talk about (and correct) the common myths and misconceptions of palliative care, as well as provide opportunity for you to get your questions answered by our experts.

Understanding Palliative Care will be presented by Michelle McClure and facilitated by our CEO, Lana Glogowski.  Michelle has qualifications covering nursing, health management and leadership, as well as a wealth of expertise in palliative care, including managing the Albany Community Hospice. She is passionate about people having enough information to make choices about their end of life treatments and how they can maximise their quality of life.
