In Sunshine Coast by PHN Communications

Country to Coast, QLD’s fourth round of Clinical Societies events wrapped up on 12 June, totaling more than 1000 participants and thousands more connections forged since the program launched in August 2023.

CCQ Director for Healthy Ageing and host for Round four, Julie Dymock was delighted with the record attendance at the May-June sessions, where the topic was Palliative Care and Voluntary Assisted Dying – Changes, Choices and Challenges.

Many thanks for all attendees, and to our guest speakers from across the Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast regions.

Following the event, Dementia Australia also reported a spike in referrals to their services and downloads of their online resources.

You can watch CCQ’s Julie Dymock, alongside Dr Christelle Greer, GP Palliative Care Maleny; Dr Harry Jacobs, Authorised VAD Practitioner; and Dr Diedre Stalk, Senior Medical Officer QVAD Support and Pharmacy Service at a Clinical Society event in Buderim.
