Given the high risk to public health currently posed by Coronavirus, Cancer Council WA have made the decision to put all PaSCE and PEPA face-to-face workshops on hold until further notice.
All video conferencing will continue as advertised for now. If you are currently booked into a workshop we will be in contact with you shortly.
The safety and wellbeing of our presenters, health care professionals, any person with a life-limiting illness and the wider WA community must come first. We are sure this decision is in the best interests of everyone involved.
We will continue to monitor the situation and act on the advice of public health professionals and WA and Federal Governments.
If you have any questions, please contact us on 9382 9300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you or someone you know has cancer and are concerned, please call our cancer nurses on 13 11 20.
