Allied health professionals are part of the multidisciplinary palliative care team. Professionals from a range of disciplines support patients with life limiting illness throughout their palliative and end of life care to maintain function, achieve their goals and live well until the end of life.

This webinar will be a panel style discussion with members of this multidisciplinary allied health team. We will be joined by an Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist and Music Therapist, as well as a carer with lived experience working with the allied health team. Please join us for this webinar to hear more about the role of the allied health in the palliative and end of life care team.
