Palliative Care WA Emerging Leaders Network
This Network was launched at the Awards Dinner in May 2019 and has been established as a sub-group of individual members of PCWA. The aim of the network is to develop a peer platform to facilitate career development and inter-disciplinary collaboration for the next generation of palliative care practitioners and future leaders emerging from the health, aged and disability sectors. It is designed to support professionals entering the palliative care space for those who have been working no more than 10 years.
The Network will be peer-led and meet periodically to facilitate opportunities for networking, information sharing and professional development including mentorship.
