Stories from Palliative Care Evening

A young girl signing the doctor's words for her deaf parents, the words of an Irish woman by her husband's side, a community in East Timor helping a cancer patient, a family wishing for their loved one to wake up and speak to them again and an African nurse hiding her tears from HIV/AIDS patients. Dr Frank Brennan's stories from around the globe resonated with compassion and humanity. Dr Brennan, a Palliative Care physician, who currently works in Sydney at Calvary Hospital, read from his work Standing on the Platform: Stories and Reflections from Palliative Care. His visit was organised by Clinical Nurse Consultant for Palliative and Supportive Care: Greater Western Area Health Service. (Southern and Eastern sectors) James Daley to raise awareness of Palliative Care. To read more about the evening go to: http://wavingnotdrowning1.blogspot.com/
