Caring for the Dying: Past to Future

Join us at the inaugural Jennifer Cashmore Oration

The inaugural address, to be held on Wednesday 24 November at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), will be delivered by Professor Gregory Crawford who will explore palliative care from past to future in South Australia.

Mahatma Gandhi said, “The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members”.

Palliative care will eventually be needed for most of us. How a society cares for, funds programs and services, and enacts legislation for those facing the end of their lives remains vitally important today but is not always visible, spoken about or well understood.

The past informs the future, and this is certainly the case for palliative care in South Australia.

How have the values and practices of this history influenced our current directions, and what does the future hold for palliative care in our society?

This address will aim to answer this question.

The inaugural Jennifer Cashmore Oration is a free event presented by The History Trust of South Australia and supported by Seniors Card, Office for Ageing Well and SA Health.
