MCWH is very pleased to be part of the Culturally Responsive Palliative Care Community Education project, a collaborative project headed by Palliative Care Victoria and launched by the Health Minister, Hon. David Davis. The project will use best practice approaches to raise awareness about palliative care and improve access to palliative care services, focusing on the Chinese, Italian, Maltese, Turkish and Vietnamese communities.

In collaboration with the Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria, MCWH will run around 90 peer education sessions using our bi-lingual educators, as well as raising awareness through ethnic media. The launch was a great success, and MCWH looks forward to working with communities on this issue.
