National Palliative Care Week 2022

National Palliative Care Week is Australia’s largest annual awareness-raising initiative, sparking important conversations about the benefits of quality palliative care and acknowledge and celebrate the commitment and dedication of all those working and volunteering in the palliative care sector.

From Sunday 22 – Saturday 28 May 2022, virtual and face-to-face events will be held across the country for clinicians and the community including:

National Palliative Care Week is also a great time to check out Palliative Care Australia’s 2022-2027 Roadmap meeting the growing demand for palliative care in Australia, expected to increase by 50 per cent between now and 2035, and double by 2050.
