Palliative Care Week 2024

May 20, 2024

This week we proudly celebrate National Palliative Care Week.

When Karuna was founded in 1992 by Venerable Pende Hawter, he had a vision to offer the local community a specialist palliative care service based on Buddhist principles.
Over the years Karuna has evolved and remains a trusted, reliable service to patients and their families when they need us most, providing essential clinical care, bereavement support, spiritual care and much more.

There are many people who play important roles within the palliative care sector, so this week we encourage you to connect with the ‘people at the heart of quality palliative care’ – the doctors, nurses, social workers, volunteers, and many others.
