New Zealanders are being asked to learn 10 things about palliative care by the Palliative Care Council as part of the World Hospice and Palliative Care Day. The World Hospice and Palliative Care Day would fall on the 9th of October.
It has been found that palliative care is an integral part of medical care for people. Palliative care is known to be very helpful for people who are suffering from diseases that bring down the span of life or are extremely painful.
The Chairman of the Palliative Care Council, New Zealand, Dr. Kate Grundy while talking about the importance of palliative care stated that it would have to grow tremendously in the future, as a generation of New Zealanders would be turning old in the future. New Zealanders would have to understand the pros and cons of palliative care and realize how it can help New Zealanders.
Dr. Grundy added that the need to appreciate palliative care was important. The need to stress on palliative care especially increases as it plays a vital role in the medical system of New Zealand.
