MEETING 1140: PALLIATIVE CARE

This was Liz’s first presentation to lay people instead of other health professionals, so in some ways we were guinea pigs; if our eyes glazed over, Liz knew to edit that part of her presentation, but happily this never occurred. Liz explained the role of primary care teams, specialist palliative care teams and other health professionals who work in consultation. Hey if Rotary is bad for acronyms then how about NAPS, CAPS and SAPS that cater for palliative care in the metro area, with Statewide paediatric care. In addition, SA Health caters for country centres. 1140 Bulletin
