Aboriginal Palliative Care Symposium
10 Dec 2015
The Victorian Health Minister, Hon. Jill Hennessy, announced new funding for three Cherie Waight Aboriginal Palliative Care Scholarships on 2nd December 2016.
Addressing the gap in Aboriginal palliative care must be a priority in the Victorian Government’s End of Life Care Framework, according to peak bodies VACCHO and Palliative Care Victoria.
The Auditor-General recommends health services provide more support to assist patients and carers to access services when they need them.
Investing in palliative care is a win-win strategy as it improves the quality of life of patients and their families and uses health resources more effectively.
