The Australian Government has asked caring@home to develop resources to support the preparedness of palliative care service providers during the COVID-19 pandemic. These resources are now available for order (see blue button right).

 

caring@home aims to improve the quality of palliative care service delivery across Australia. Resources are available to support people to be cared for and to die at home, if that is their choice. Resources are applicable Australia-wide for community service providers, health care professionals and carers to support carers to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines. This project has been extended to 31 March, 2021.
