National Palliative Care Week 2024

Department of Health

National Palliative Care Week is running from 19 to 25 May 2024.

Palliative care focuses on physical, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of care.

Palliative care is family-centred. Family, loved ones and carers can also receive practical and emotional support.

Early access to palliative care helps people to maintain quality of life by managing pain and symptoms.

It’s never too soon to start the conversation about matters of life and death.

For advice, tools and support visit the Palliative Care Australia website.
