Event description
Dying to Yarn - Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities

About this Event

An undignified death leads to emotional and spiritual distress for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, families and communities. In raising the awareness of Palliative Care and a “good death” the Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach and the Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education present Dying to Yarn - Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

Discussing death and dying is considered taboo in some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities. While many individuals are not comfortable with such conversations, education and knowledge shared in this area can assist loved ones on their end-of-life journey, ensuring it is one of comfort, dignity, cultural respect and fulfilled wishes.

A "good death" can be defined as free from avoidable distress and suffering, in general accord with the patient's and family's wishes and reasonably consistent with clinical, cultural and ethical standards.

Yarning allows one to express the preferred care for their end-of-life journey, reflect on memories, say goodbyes, attend to unfinished business and live well during their final footprints.

Program topics will be based around the holistic models of palliative care and Indigenous health, consisting of a variety of informative presentations.

Speaker topics:

Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Advance Care Planning

Grief, Loss & Bereavement

Advocating for patient and families rights at end-of-life

Cultural and Spiritual Care

Pain Management

Registrations open to all Indigenous Health Professionals, Elders and Community members. Non-Indigenous and Culturally Linguistically Diverse Health Professionals caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients are also encouraged to register.
