National Palliative Care Week 2022 with Right at Home Australia

| Palliative Care

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

Now in its 27th year, and traditionally held in the last full week of May, NPCW is organised by Palliative Care Australia (PCA) and supported by the Australian Government Department of Health. This year’s theme is ‘It’s your right’ and seeks to raise awareness about the rights of all Australians to access high-quality palliative care when and where they need it.

Each year, NPCW provides us with an opportunity to highlight and celebrate the work of not only hundreds of palliative care specialists and palliative care nurses, but also the support provided by general practitioners, volunteers, allied health professionals, community workers and family members.

“Palliative care is available to people with a serious and life-limiting illness and their families, to assist in managing their symptoms, improve their quality of life and help them to live as well as possible, for as long as possible,” said Right at Home Australia CEO Daryl Sahli.

Daryl says that palliative care workers and services have a deep understanding of the difficult situations people near the end of their life or with a life-limiting illness often face.

“They can be instrumental in balancing a variety of perspectives and incorporating the psychological, social, and spiritual concerns of patients, their families and the staff caring for them. They are also there to support the loved ones of people near the end of their life and help them live through their grief and bereavement, he added.
