Learning from an Expert

By: Stacy Orloff

There are many hospice and palliative care leaders in South Africa.  We had an amazing opportunity to spend all day Saturday with one of the long time leaders in the South African hospice and palliative care movement- Barbara Campbell-Ker.  Barbara is the former CEO of the Hospice Association of the Witwatersrand (our sister hospice).  Barbara spent the day with us, first at Constitutional Hill, and then hosting us, along with her husband James, at their home for afternoon tea and dinner.  Barbara is a long time board member of national hospice associations and took some important time to educate all of us about national hospice and palliative care efforts in South Africa.  It was very important for us to get this perspective and we’re very appreciative of Barbara sharing her legacy with us.
