Health Consumers Queensland has an opportunity for two (2) consumers or carers in the Townsville region to consult with their local community to understand the current supports in place, community needs and opportunities for the education system/teachers/students/parents when a child or a relative experiences a serious illness, dying, death or grief.

About the project

Health Consumers Queensland has been contracted by Palliative Care Queensland through the Connecting End of Life Care in Townsville project to facilitate two (2) kitchen table discussions/yarning circles in February/March to understand the current supports in place, community needs and opportunities for the education system/teachers/students/parents when a child or a relative experiences a serious illness, dying, death or grief.

Palliative Care Queensland will share the outcomes of the consultation at a roundtable with representatives from Townsville schools – teachers and P&F members etc., to gain their perspective, knowledge and feedback on the learnings from the Kitchen Table Discussions.  The Connecting End of Life Care in Townsville project will then combine the learnings to develop a tool to support families experiencing serious illness, dying, death or grief.

Who are we seeking as hosts?

Consumers or community members who have an understanding or interest in this important subject or consumers/carers who have had a family member experience a serious illness, dying, death or grief while they have had a school age child (primary or secondary).
