National Palliative Care Week Australia

The following information is provided by Palliative Care Australia for National Palliative Care Week Australia.  We encourage our members of our Japanese partner JECCS, nursing students and health professionals, to take the time to explore what is happening in Australia.

National Palliative Care Week this May offers a key moment of reflection for all Australians.  Between 21 and 27 May, 2023 ‘Matters of Life and Death’ will be front and centre in our communities’ consciousness as we highlight the ‘people at the heart of quality palliative care’.   The 2023 campaign is centered on the launch of the film ‘Live the life you please’. The full-length documentary follows the stories of Australians of all ages and different stages of disease, in a variety of geographical locations, cultural, socio-economic and personal circumstances. The people you will meet in the film will stay with you forever – their powerful stories become something that reaches into your hearts.
