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.

Evaluation surveys - have your say.

The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) are working to evaluate the effect of the online education modules and resources on nurses and carers. One way of being a part of the evaluation is to complete the short five-minute survey prior to starting the online modules, and the post-education survey upon completing the modules.

The pre-education and post-education surveys help us understand how to best support you in your clinical practice; your thoughts are important to us.
