How does the Community Panel work?
Panel members with different viewpoints will work together in a respectful manner and come to a shared position to the question on ‘What does dying well look like and how can we help people achieve this?’ To ensure that a diverse range of views are represented on the Panel, 40 participants will be randomly selected.
The Community Panel’s recommendations will be used to help plan and design better care and services to improve end-of-life care and palliative support for people living in our region.
The NWMPHN region includes the local government areas of: Melbourne, Maribyrnong, Brimbank, Moonee Valley, Moreland, Darebin, Yarra, Hobsons Bay, Hume, Melton, Wyndham, Moorabool and Macedon Ranges.
