    Make dying deadly

    An undignified death leads to emotional and spiritual distress for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, families and communities. In raising the awareness of Palliative Care and a “good death” the Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach and Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education present “Make Dying Deadly” – Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

    An undignified death leads to emotional and spiritual distress for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients, families and communities. In raising the awareness of Palliative Care and a “good death” the Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach and Centre for Palliative Care Research and Education present “Make Dying Deadly” – Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

    “A good death” in palliative care is defined as “one that is free from avoidable distress and suffering, for patients, family, and caregivers; in general accord with the patients' and families' wishes; and reasonably consistent with clinical, cultural, and ethical standards”.

    While the topic of “death and dying” is considered taboo for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and are not comfortable conversations to have, education and knowledge shared in this area can assist loved ones on their end-of-life journey, ensuring it is one of comfort, dignity, cultural respect and fulfilled wishes.

    Program topics will be based around the holistic models of palliative care and Indigenous health, consisting of a variety of informative presentations.

    Speaker topics:

    Palliative Care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

    Advance Care Planning

    Grief, Loss & Bereavement

    Advocating for patient and families rights at end-of-life

    Cultural and Spiritual Care

    Pain Management

    Date and Time

    Fri., 1 November 2019

    8:30 am – 5:00 pm AEST

    Location

    Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre
