Event description
An opportunity to celebrate National Palliative Care Week, network with sector colleagues and hear from a leader in palliative care.

About this event

You are invited to join us for our popular sector breakfast for 2021 National Palliative Care Week.

A key annual event on the PCWA calendar, the breakfast provides a significant opportunity for all of us who work in and around palliative care to come together as a sector during National Palliative Care Week and hear from an Australian leader in palliative care.

Our guest speaker

The speaker for this year’s breakfast is Dr Peter Saul. An intensive care specialist, Dr Saul has over 40 years clinical experience communicating with patients and their families about end-of-life issues in acute care settings in four countries.

With a strong interest in medical ethics and medical communication Dr Saul was a founder of the Clinical Unit in Ethics and Health Law at the University of Newcastle and has been Head of Discipline for Medical Ethics and Chair of the Hunter Area Clinical Ethics Committee for many years. He is the medical lead for the MyNetCare project, a web-based patient-controlled end of life handover tool and recently has been involved in a nurse facilitated study which encourages patients recently discharged from an acute geriatric unit to actively embrace ACP.

You can find out more about Dr Saul on our website HERE.

Dr Saul will be speaking on Old? Frail? Dying? – making the choice to palliate in the frail elderly.

“I have had a longstanding interest in frailty, a unique condition in that it is a phenotype rather than a syndrome that has no definitive diagnostic test. Surprisingly, researchers are quite consistent with each other in identifying it, so it’s undoubtedly real. It also has a dramatic effect on outcome from surgery and critical illness. We clearly have to treat frail people differently. But how we do this in practice? In an era of shared decision making there are many challenges, both ethical and medical. My feeling is that the biggest challenge facing Palliative Care in the future is not so much how to palliate but whom, and when.”
