ational Palliative Care Week 2020 Resources
In 2020, National Palliative Care Week (NPCW) will be held from Sunday 24 May – Saturday 30 May, with the theme “Palliative Care… It’s more than you think”. Palliative care can help people with life-limiting illnesses to live as well as possible, for as long as possible – supporting their physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs. During NPCW 2020 we hope to spark important conversations in the community about the benefits of quality palliative care and celebrate the amazing dedication of all those working and volunteering in palliative care across Australia. There’s more than you think!
COVID-19 restrictions have forced the cancellation of many physical events and gatherings – but there’s still plenty of ways you can get involved in NPCW!
In NSW we will be posting video interviews and presentations throughout the week so keep your eyes open!

Unfortunately – some of the expected resources WILL NOT be available in time. This is thanks to supply issues out of China. We have pens and lapel ribbons though and will send these to you next week. We do apologise but given the circumstances – there’s not much to be done. They will arrive later and can be used for other ‘events’.
