In This Together – National Reconciliation Week 2020
This year National Reconciliation Week overlaps with National Palliative Care Week.
So, what does culturally appropriate palliative care look like?
Cancer Council WA's Palliative and Supportive Care Education team has produced an educational video resource. The video is made for health professionals working with Aboriginal people, especially Aboriginal people originating from the West Kimberley region.
The video demonstrates the insights that can be learnt when we take the time to engage in meaningful two way dialogue and seek to truly understand and respect cultural perspectives. We really are in this together.
This, and other helpful resources, can be can be accessed through the “Aboriginal People Resources” section of the Great Southern Compassionate Communities Toolkit.
