In 2021, we released a new report, Navigating Telehealth: – the patients’ perspective and an accompanying background report, calling on decision-makers to include patients, families and carers in discussions and decisions about permanent telehealth services in Australia.
OWN and HCNSW decided to partner to investigate the issue of ageism in the health care sector in NSW. The project has its genesis in anecdotal evidence from the many members of HCNSW and OWN NSW, about instances of ageism they experienced in their dealings with the health care sector.
Hard to believe – but our organisation turned 10, and we celebrated this decade of passionate voices, helping hands, bright minds, getting involved, generous hearts and coming together with a special 10-year publication: A decade of HCNSW. A decade of HCNSW was launched at our online Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2021 on 19 November.
Health Consumers NSW supports all people facing decisions about end-of-life care being able to access the type of care they want and need, including end of life and palliative care, as well as spiritual and pastoral care.
