Widening the reach of Palliative Care

Categories: Community Engagement.

Participants come from afar as Kimberley, Riviersonderend and Gansbaai.

The aim of the course is to teach the principles and practices of current palliative care practices, and how the various disciplines might integrate these into their own health care settings. The participants found the course contents, role plays and reflections extremely valuable and helpful in terms of them being ‘enabled’ to provide treatment and care to patients and families living with a life-threatening illness.

Pictured below are the participants, and three of the course facilitators, namely: Fran Tong – General Manager; Sr. Saskia Schiel – Palliative Care Nurse and Fransil Kotze – Social worker. To find out more about Overstand Hospice click here.
