Whisper No More 2 day Workshop

“Sharing our stories for better cancer and palliative care outcomes for Aboriginal people and their families”

This two day workshop is designed for health professionals working with Aboriginal clients to develop their skills in caring for Aboriginal people and their families facing cancer and palliative care.

This workshop will incorporate the “Whisper no More” resource developed by the WA Centre for Rural Health.
Whisper no more is a learning package that contains stories from Aboriginal people about their experience of
cancer. Understanding more about Aboriginal people’s views of cancer and experiences of health care is essential to developing better cancer care and health outcomes. It will help answer some questions, encourage reflection and discussion around health issues for Aboriginal people, communication styles and best practice for people with cancer.

  • cultural humility
  • delayed diagnosis and prevention screening for cancer patients
  • regional cancer services and how they can help
  • how to live well after cancer

Day two will explore:

  • palliative care for your Aboriginal clients
  • what is important to your Aboriginal clients and their families towards end of life
  • advance care yarning and communication with your clients
