Have your say on local palliative and end-of-life care services

  20 June 2023  NWMPHN   

The Australian Government wants to hear your views on how palliative care is being delivered, and how it can be improved.

Primary Health Networks are working with service providers to implement the Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care Program, which was launched by the Department of Health and Aged Care in 2017.

The program aims to:

  • improve access to the best palliative care at home
  • support palliative care services in primary health and community care
  • make sure people get the right care, at the right time and in the right place to reduce unnecessary hospital visits
  • generate and use data to improve services
  • use technology to provide flexible and responsive care, including after-hours care.

As a provider in this field, your experience and insight regarding current palliative care services will help us understand if patient needs and preferences are being met.

To have your say, we encourage you to complete this short survey.

All information collected will be confidential, and no personal information or details will be collected.

The survey will remain open until 5pm, Friday, 21 July 2023.​ It will take only about 15 minutes to complete.

If you experience any technical issues with the survey, please contact varsha.krithivasan@au.pwc.com

​Thank you for your participation!

By the way, one of NWMPHN’s ​Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care Program activities has been the creation of Precious Time, a website full of information and local resources for people with an end-of-life condition, their families, carers and friends.
