FITTER | HAPPIER: Palliative Care

Thursday 17th May / presented by Jorja Keay

National Palliative Care Week kicks off next week, aiming to get Australians to openly start talking about Palliative care ('end-of-life' care as it is more commonly referred to as) This type of care is a support system for people to help them live their life to the fullest while they carry an illness that's either terminal or life-limiting. The underlying philosophy behind this type of care is the view that death, dying and bereavement are all an integral part of life.

For today's segment of Fitter Happier we were joined by two representatives for the Department of Health's Palliative Care Network - Valerie Colgan and Kim Greeve, to assist us in discussing this particularly sensitive subject in finer detail.
