​Supportive Care - Into the Dreaming

Supportive-care.jpgA Guide for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through “Sorry Business”.

This resource has been developed to provide culturally sensitive, respectful, responsive and appropriate methods of communication when dealing with health care and Sorry Business with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people.

The booklet has been produced to improve the effectiveness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s journey through the system for those that are affected by palliative illnesses – "Sorry Business” who are located across local communities within the Hunter New England boundary.

The work of our Palliative Care Services around our district is to enable patients, families and community to maintain dignity, comfort and maximize the quality of life for all affected by life threatening illness.
