It is National Palliative Care Week 2022 from Sunday 22 May to Saturday 28 May with the theme ‘Palliative Care It’s your right’.
This theme seeks to raise awareness about the rights of all Australians to access high-quality palliative care when and where they need it.
Access to timely palliative care allows people with a life-limiting illness to keep doing what they love with friends and family.
The project aims to ensure those who wish to stay at home, can stay at home for longer while still receiving quality care as the project supports health professionals and carers to deliver exceptional care.
GPs play an important role in managing palliative care at home, including managing pain relief and other symptoms. See the Gippsland PHN Health Needs Assessment (https://gphn.org.au/what-we-do/health-planning-research-and-evaluation/population-health/our-priorities/).
