Palliative and Supportive Care Education (PaSCE)

Taking into account the WA Government’s latest easing of restrictions, Cancer Council WA and PaSCE are working on plans to resume face-to-face education. 

We understand that there is still uncertainty around health and safety within our community, so we will also continue to offer video conference sessions.

Please be assured that health and safety is our main priority and all face-to-face education sessions will follow physical distancing and hygiene requirements and we will also be limiting participant numbers to ensure a safe environment for all.

If you have any questions, please contact us on 9382 9300 or pasce@cancerwa.asn.au.

If you or someone you know has cancer and are concerned, please call our cancer nurses on 13 11 20.
