Conversations that Count Day took place across New Zealand this week (on April 16th). Read a selection of the various conversations and discussions generated around this event hereherehere, here, here and here.

At the same time, the US National Healthcare Decision Day promoted similar conversations across the pacific. An excellent collection of resources from Pallimed can be found here.

The Victorian Auditor-General’s Office released its report on the provision of palliative care services in the state this week. It’s findings and recommendations are both heartening and  worrying. Mainstream and palliative care media responses can be found here and here.

The Australian Medical Association also released its position statement on Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care Facilities earlier this week.

Many of us love a great TED talk. Haven’t heard of them? Or simply looking for a few more to feed your addiction? Check out this playlist on “New ways to think about death”.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
