Australian Association of Gerontology (Albury-Wodonga Rural Branch) invites you to a Professional Development session on Palliative Care and Ageing.

Palliative care is more than cancer care. Australia has witnessed a demographic revolution with most people alive today expecting to live to old age. The largest group requiring access to palliative care are now older people. The course of a life-limiting illness for older people tends to be more complex, longer term, more chronic and linked to multiple factors that serve to complicate the provision of palliative care.

Speakers will present updates regarding treatment, end of life options, hospice care and palliative care.
