At any one time there are hundreds of people in Hawke's Bay in need of palliative care.

Most of these people are cared for at home and home includes aged-care facilities.

Not all of these people are known or cared for by specialist palliative care services, this makes palliative care everyone's business, your business.

Good palliative care isn't always complicated. It starts with good assessment and active listening.

It may be that you know very little or that you are already knowledgeable and confident. We hope the information and links in these pages will guide and support you in your work.


We look forward to working with you to improve palliative care provision for the people of Hawke's Bay.
