Workshop: Public Health approach to Palliative Care (PHPC)

Director, Palliative Care Unit, School of Psychology & Public Health, La Trobe University

Dr Bruce Rumbold OAM holds postgraduate qualifications in physics, pastoral care and health social science, and has published in all three fields. His longstanding interest in palliative care began with doctoral work in England in the mid-seventies, and has continued throughout palliative care’s period of development in Australia. The health promoting model employed by the La Trobe University Palliative Care Unit, with its emphasis on social and spiritual care, is particularly congenial to his interests in community development, pastoral care, and spirituality.
