Palliative Care Workshops

Palliative Care WA delivers a range of free, informative and interactive community education workshops to help people learn more about palliative care.

Palliative care:

  • helps people with any life-limiting or terminal condition to live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible. It is not just for people with cancer
  • identifies and treats symptoms, which may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social
  • provides practical and emotional support to family and carers.

What is covered in our Palliative Care workshop?

The workshop covers:

  • What is palliative care?
  • Who provides palliative care?
  • Services and resources
  • Compassionate communities
  • Grief and loss
  • The role of advance care planning in palliative care.

Handouts will be provided to workshop participants.

These workshops complement the Advance Care Planning workshops that are available online and in person.
