A practical guide for caring for people at the end of life

In 2015 the Grampians Region Palliative Care Consortium supported Central Grampians Palliative Care to produce a Carer’s guide that comprises a DVD, a key messages booklet and an attractive folder to store essential program information. The product was well received, not just on a client/carer level, but more from other Palliative Care providers who were searching for easy to access, compact training tools. In August 2016, Palliative Care Australia featured an article about the resource that in turn generated more than 130 requests for a copy. This resource has been updated in 2019 to include additional topics and the Medical Treatment Planning & Decision Act(2016) which came into effect on 12th March 2018.

Playlists included are:- Introduction, Everyday care, Managing Symptoms, Psychological/Emotional, Planning Ahead, When Death is Near and Following Death.
Click on the menu in top right corner of each playlist to find an individual topic you require. OR just click play to watch the playlist right through.
