Palliative Care Australia awards 2021

Opportunity for Australian members: $2,000 National Palliative Care Award – Nominate now!
Dear Australian readers,

Do you have an hour or so this week to take the time to recognise someone who has made an important contribution to palliative care? Award winners are eligible to receive $2,000 (for individual awards) or $4000 (for team awards) to go toward professional development.

This year there are four new awards with the aim to recognise a broader range of people, including the work in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, generalist areas, community-based care, and Paediatric palliative care. 

The form will roughly take 20 minutes to complete. The person nominating will need to gain approval from the nominee and document whether this person has received an award in the past.
There is a 5000 character written piece that needs to address the criteria of the particular award which can be found here –
