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.

Evaluation of The Just in Case Box project

The Just in Case Box (JiCB) was a four-year project implemented as part of hospice@HOME in Tasmania.  Its purpose was to provide equitable access to timely symptom relief for people with a life limiting illness who expressed a preference to die at home.  It formed part of the overall end-of-life plan and included the pre-emptive provision of subcutaneous medicines (recommended by the Australian and New Zealand Society of Palliative Medicine) and consumables.
