Our community is growing!
In palliative care, the theme is always, team. Palliative care is offered by a multidisciplinary team. Depending on the patient’s needs this team typically might include a combination of a doctor, a nurse, a social worker, a spiritual counsellor, psychologist, physiotherapist, dietician, occupational therapist, and speech therapist.
In 2021 PALPRAC expanded its membership base to include trained palliative care professionals from each of these disciplines. This aligns with our vision to enable access to quality Palliative Care for those people affected by serious illnesses. The response has been wonderful and we see new members joining our organisation, especially associate members, those who are healthcare professionals and are passionate about palliative care. Many of these members in turn engage within our systems to raise awareness in our healthcare system, offering access through their improved knowledge of palliative care. Our monthly PalliCHATS, CPD accredited webinars covering a number of themes, offer an engaging platform to review topics and discuss these topics within a peer-sharing environment.
PALPRAC offer both full and associate membership to healthcare workers in Southern Africa, depending on your palliative care training and support you offer within your practice. As the speciality grows in South Africa, more and more healthcare professionals are joining as associate members, these member benefits include,
- Free access to CPD-accredited PalliCHAT Zoom conversations.
- Access to palliative care information on our member’s platform.
- Support advocacy in integrating palliative care in SA.
- Newsletters, info on events, and other related news.
Your support will assist PALPRAC in continuing our advocacy as we pursue our vision to enable the access of palliative care to patients with serious illness and their families. As an incentive to new members, we are giving away one Kindle Paperwhite worth R3500 at the end of October to a lucky new member that has joined between 1 August – 31 October 2022. **
