Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting

The target audience for the Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting include health workers providing palliative care to older people in community settings, such as community aged care nurses, care workers and general practitioners.

JustHealth Consultants (JHC) are developing a palliative care education and training package following the release of the Guidelines.

Four documents have been developed as part of the Guidelines package, including:

* Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting);
* Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting Volume 2 - Processes Underpinning Best Practice Recommendations; and Appendix D
* A supporting booklet for care workers; and
* A supporting booklet for older people receiving care, their families and friends.

The Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting were developed as a companion document to the Guidelines for a Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care.
