This year's Palliative Care week theme is 'You matter, Your care matters. Palliative care can make a difference’.
So many of us confuse palliative care with end of life care, assuming that death is imminent if we are referred to palliative care. Palliative care embodies wholeness, peacefulness and enhanced quality of life-- pain and symptom management so that you can get on with living as well as you can until you can't. Whether this is for a day, a week or a year is irrelevant compared with the relief found when you can let go of fear and despair even for just 1 hour. Please call MPA 1300 88 44 50 in office hours for more information. #npcw
