Perron Institute Symposium | 2 August 2022
Compassionate Communities reframing Palliative Care

About this event

Recognising that 95% of care provided to people at end of life is informal care, and only 5% is provided by formal services, there is growing global interest in adopting the compassionate communities approach to support people with a life limiting illness or chronic disease.

This Symposium provides the opportunity to hear about applications of this approach by world leaders in the field (Dr Julian Abel, Dr Libby Sallnow and Prof Samar Aoun) as well as the evidence, implications and potential replication in other regions, of an innovative program running in Western Australia’s South West, pioneered by trained volunteer compassionate community connectors to support patients and their family carers
