I have been working as a Palliative Care physician over a decade (in the UK and now, in rural NW-Tasmania).
I have been working with the small community based palliative care team to cover 25,000 square km area! Working in the rural palliative care is a ‘challenge’ and a new experience!
- There are unmet palliative care needs in terms of access to the widely dispersed population in NW Tasmania.
- This rural population is mostly supported by GPs & Community nurses.
This Blog is created to support my rural primary health care colleagues !
- To develop a strong palliative care understanding / foundation, through education to rural NW Tasmania.
- To disseminate / share my understandings & experiences with rest of the world.
