What is Last Aid?
Last Aid is a 4-hour international standardised introductory level education program and the first in Australia.
Who can attend?
This course is for all members of the community, including healthcare workers. You need no training or experience in the space.
The way we care for our dying is a significant indicator of the kind of society we are.
Serious illness, dying, death and grief are a part of life. This education program is for members of the community, community groups, businesses, retirees, who want to improve their confidence and skills in supporting carers, family members, colleagues or people experiencing a serious illness, dying, death or grief.
Although Last Aid is not specifically designed for healthcare workers or professional carers, it can be beneficial for healthcare workers having conversations about death, dying and grief in practice.
What topics are covered?
– Dying as a normal part of life
– Planning ahead
– Relieving suffering
– Final goodbyes
Places limited (includes light lunch): Free for people living in Goondiwindi and surrounding areas.
This event is sponsored by West Moreton and Darling Downs Primary Health Network.
