Palliative care message sticks

Message sticks

The Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO) Palliative Care project arranged the  creation of message sticks for each of the 8 palliative care consortia. These message sticks are important cultural tools for  use when having conversations with Aboriginal communities.  There is a range of information for community members on the VACCHO website    http://www.vaccho.org.au/programs/health-programs/palliative-care/

The EMRPCC have had a special display case made for our message stick. This allows the stick to be stored safely while still being able to be removed and taken to the community.
