Being the first adolescent palliative care unit in Australia, Amy said she is excited to be at the forefront of the speciality.
“This is a unique opportunity to support a team of nurses to become Australia’s experts in adolescent palliative care nursing,” she said.
“It is a privilege to care for young people and their families facing such immense challenges and I am excited to help create a space that is life affirming for patients and staff alike.”
At the AYAH, Amy’s aim is to help build a caring and collaborative community.
Recruitment of staff for AYAH is progressing and most of the positions have been filled including medical specialist, nursing, allied health and support staff.
