Event description
We are thrilled to be holding our first Education Day since 2019. Please join us for a day of learning and networking.

About this event

National Palliative Care Week  (NPCW), held from 22 – 28 May 2022, is Australia’s largest annual awareness-raising initiative held to increase understanding of the many benefits of palliative care.

We are pleased to announce the theme for National Palliative Care Week 2022 is It’s your right. The theme seeks to raise awareness about the rights of all Australians to access high-quality palliative care when and where they need it. One of the great myths about palliative care is that it is only a synonym for end-of-life care. It is so much more than that.  Anyone with a life-limiting illness has the right to live as well as possible, for as long as possible.

We will be holding our Annual Education Day on Friday 27th May at Novotel

Hotel Sydney Olympic Park
