Services producing their own caring@home resources

As we move towards the end of the caring@home project in June 2020, services need to plan how to reproduce these resources on an ongoing basis. This will ensure carers can continue to be supported to help manage breakthrough symptoms safely using subcutaneous medicines for people who want to be cared for, and to die at home, if possible.

Supporting palliative and end-of-life care in the home

With more older Australians choosing to be cared for, and die at home, if possible, Level 3 & 4 Home Care Package providers need to ensure service provision meets the end-of-life and palliative care needs of their clients.

The caring@home resources can be used by providers to help deliver high-quality, person-centred, end-of-life care aligned to consumer wishes and the new Aged Care Quality Standards.

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.
