During this year’s NAIDOC Week Palliative Care Australia launched a new video resource called Final Footprints: My Culture, My Kinship, My Country that examines safe and appropriate ways to approach the challenging subject of death and dying with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
The video highlights the importance of having discussions early on with your kin and community and having your final wishes written down and provides food for thought on the importance of palliative care.

Warning: Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this event may contain the (images/voices/names) of people who have passed away. The session will include discussion on “death and dying”, “finishing up”, “sorry or sad business” or “sorry camps”, and “palliative care”.
