Volunteers working in a comprehensive palliative care service in Australia

This experien was gained from initiating, developing, and managing a palliative care volunteer service in a public hospital. In Australia, such public hospitals are commonly called medical centres. The chapter looks at the volunteers that provide palliative care in these medical centres, their working conditions, the recruitment process, their work area, training courses, and even the possible problems that could arise.
