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.

 

  • One year on...

    *  3,500 caring@home carer packages distributed

        to health professionals

    *  3,800 caring@home downloads of palliMEDS

        app for prescribers

    *  1,700 downloads of Guidelines for the handling

        of palliative care medicines in community services

Evaluation surveys - have your say.

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.

Shannon's Bridge, via a grant from the Victorian Government's End-of-life Ancillary Service program, will fund the production and distribution of 3,500 caring@home carer packages for community services who care for palliative patients in Victoria. 

This partnership will enable more choice for terminally-ill Victorians who wish to be cared for and to die at home.
