Karen Dickson is a Launceston resident with 30 years’ nursing and midwifery experience. In her everyday work in the Emergency Department, she sees firsthand the impact of death upon individuals and families whether by trauma, attempted suicide or as a result of significant illness.
She believes that individuals have inherent value and life is precious. A person, irrespective of age or circumstance, should have the opportunity to flourish in life, and if the circumstances of life present a challenge to well-being, be cared for well.
Karen has been involved in community radio for many years, chairs the board for a national mothering organisation, is a wife and mum with three teen daughters, and believes in advocacy for those who are at risk.
