Accolade for Team at Mercy Place Westcourt Reflects Dedication

on the Tuesday, December 4, 2018

The team of caring staff at Mercy Place Westcourt have had their dedication and commitment to seniors and end-of-life care recognised by the Connecting End of Life Care – Cairns (CELC-C) project team.

Members of the Mercy Place Westcourt team were recently informed they had won two of the three categories in the recent CELC-C training needs analysis survey. The survey is the first step in a state-wide initiative to provide a Palliative Care in Aged Care Practice Development Program.

As a result, the team from Mercy Place Westcourt has been awarded free registration and flights to the Palliative Care in Queensland Annual Summit and Awards Dinner; and Good Life Good Death Expo in Brisbane.

Mercy Place Westcourt Service Manager, Angela Cox, says the team were thrilled to be recognised for their engagement in the recent survey.

“Our staff were genuinely excited to work with the team at the Connecting End of Life Care - Cairns project,” Ms Cox says.

“Clearly, the reasoning behind this project is to improve palliative care services in Cairns, something that Mercy Health is very committed to doing. This was very much reflected by how engaged the staff at Mercy Place Westcourt were when collaborating on this project.”
