Description

Palliative Care Tasmania invites you to contribute your voice at the
Building Compassionate Communities Forum (BCCF)

BCCF will be held in Hobart on Friday 13 October 2017 and Launceston on Monday 16 October 2017.

BCCF is the premier palliative care event in Tasmania during 2017 and will provide you with great opportunities to hear new information, meet new people and share your ideas and innovations.

Building Compassionate Communities challenges us to examine what Compassionate Communities means to us, how we build and support compassionate communities, and how communities can strengthen palliative care.

OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Bruce Rumbold holds postgraduate qualifications in physics, pastoral care and health social science, and has published in all three fields. His longstanding interest in palliative care began with doctoral work in England in the mid-seventies, and has continued throughout palliative care's period of development in Australia. The health promoting model employed by the La Trobe University Palliative Care Unit, with its emphasis on social and spiritual care, is particularly congenial to his interests in community development, pastoral care, and spirituality.

In 2012, A/Professor Good completed a PhD on evidence-based palliative care and is involved in both quantitative and qualitative research studies. His research interests include clinical research studies and qualitative studies in regards to patient and carer journeys in palliative care, and the experience of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) patients, carers and interpreters.
