“Palliare: A Handbook for Palliative Care Volunteers in NSW” offers background and practical guidance for people who volunteer in palliative care settings.
Chapters include Introduction to Palliative Care, The Volunteer's Role, Boundaries and Self-Care, Communication Skills, Home and Community Visiting, Advance Care Directives, Young People in Palliative Care, Spirituality and Palliative Care, Grief and Bereavement, Palliative Care, Multiculturalism and Families, The Volunteer and Comfort Care and About Dying. The information is specific to the state of NSW (Australia) but will be of interest to hospice and palliative care volunteers everywhere.
Palliare was developed in 2015 as a learning resource for palliative care volunteers in NSW as part of the Volunteer Support Services Program hosted by Palliative Care NSW and funded by the NSW Ministry of Health.
