In this first episode of the CarerHelp podcast, Grant Law speaks to Professor Jennifer Tieman and Geoff Thomas OAM about the plight of palliative carers in Australia. This podcast offers extensive general advice to lay palliative carers, offering tips and food for thought for what
many describe as one of life’s toughest challenges.
CarerHelp (www.carerhelp.com.au) is a web portal offering an extensive range of advice and support for Australians who have taken on the role of caring for a terminally-ill parent, partner, relative or friend. The initiative is led by St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne’s Centre for Palliative Care in partnership with Flinders University’s CareSearch, University of Technology Sydney and Carers Australia, the peak body for unpaid carers in Australia.
