Abstract

Dr Jackie Campbell is a palliative care veterinarian, providing support and pain relief for our fluffy and furry family members in times of need. In this talk, Jackie shares how she works to help families better navigate the challenges of end of life decision making for our pets. 
Dr Jackie Campbell is a veterinarian who will warm your heart. Passionate in equal measures about her patients and about the families who care for them, Jackie often becomes a lifeline for her clients during their most difficult of days. As the director of one of Queensland’s first palliative care services for pets, she manages a team of veterinarians who are working to help families better navigate the challenges of end of life decision making.
Alongside this important work, Jackie is the Brisbane clinic co-ordinator for a charity that brings together volunteer vets and nurses, in order to provide free veterinary care for pets of people experiencing homelessness in our community. The Pets in the Park initiative recognises and supports the bond that homeless people have with their pets and works to improve the health and wellbeing of these vital companions.
