Country to Coast Queensland’s Clinical Societies building our healthcare neighbourhood across the region

With more than 500 health professionals enjoying both networking and education at the nine quarterly events across the Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast regions.

Come join us at the upcoming CCQ Clinical Societies event as we delve into palliative care and voluntary assisted dying. This event is not just a gathering of healthcare professionals, but a gathering of hearts and minds dedicated to enhancing the support and compassion we provide to our community members during their most vulnerable times. 

Palliative care is not just a medical practice, but a mission to alleviate suffering and bring comfort to those facing life-limiting illnesses and supporting people to live well until they die.      

It is time to break down these barriers and ensure that every individual receives the care and dignity they deserve in their final moments. 

Voluntary assisted dying was legislated in Queensland in January 2023 and is available to individuals who meet eligibility requirements and for those facing suffering it offers a choice and sense of control over their own destiny. 

Let us come together to learn, to share, and to grow via networking with your peers and colleagues, to explore practical strategies to improve palliative care and support for voluntary assisted dying.
