End of Life Essentials: Toolkit Evaluation

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Background: Many Australians will receive care at some point during the last year of their life in a hospital, and many may end up dying in hospital. Clinical opportunities for quality of life can be optimised during the last 12 months of life. The End-of-Life Essentials project provides e-learning modules and implementation resources within a toolkit for hospital clinicians.

Aims: This study sought to assess the effectiveness of the action-orientated toolkit in supporting behaviour change in relation to quality end-of-life care in acute hospital settings.

Methods: Following a review of literature on end-of-life care practices and an examination of toolkit considerations, My Toolkit was drafted. The toolkit contained checklists of sixty suggested actions relating to the project. Feedback on content, structure and format was sought from internal and external reviewers. A mixed method evaluation study comprising an online survey and telephone interviews was designed.
