PalAssist is a Queensland-wide, no-cost 24-hour telephone and online service for palliative care patients, carers, family and friends seeking practical information and emotional support.
CareSearch provides trustworthy information about palliative care for patients, carers and families as well as for the health professionals providing their care. Just as trustworthy information can help patients and families understand what is happening and make decisions, research evidence helps clinicians provide the best possible care
Dying to Talk
Despite being something that touches everyone, death doesn’t receive enough visibility. Dying to Talk aims to reach into the community to normalise dying in Australia and to help Australians work out what’s right for them at the end of their lives.
Having a conversation with your loved ones about your end-of-life wishes will help them to make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to communicate your wishes. The Dying to Talk Discussion Starter guides you through talking with your loved ones.
To enhance the provision of palliative care and advance care planning services to the aged nationally, the Australian Government has funded the Specialist Palliative Care and Advance Care Planning Advisory Services (Decision Assist) Project.
