Spirituality is a fundamental element of human experience that encompasses an individual’s search for meaning and purpose in life and their experience of the transcendent.

In this forum Kate Englebrecht will discuss spirituality in the context of caring for people at or near the end of their lives. Kate will also explore reflective practice for practitioners and how meaning is made or formed from our experiences of caring.

This forum is particularly for the benefit of Palliative Care volunteers and people who are interested in becoming Palliative Care volunteers, as well as other health volunteers, volunteer managers and clinicians.
