Are you confident in providing end of life care for older Australians? How do you know if your older patient is nearing death? How can you better manage their symptoms and help them die well?
End of Life Directions for Aged Care (ELDAC) is a free, government-funded resource designed to connect you with evidence-based tools and resources in palliative care and advance care planning.
The ELDAC Primary Care toolkit has been developed by AHHA with palliative care experts to lead primary care practitioners and teams through the various steps involved in supporting advance care planning with patients and families, including considerations for people of various religious and cultural backgrounds.
There are links to fact sheets, guides, discussion starters, patient resources, podcasts, and a suite of resources centred on providing palliative care, managing dying and bereavement.
Find out more on the ELDAC website or call the ELDAC Helpline (1800 870 155) for more information.
