Abstract

The aged care sector attends to the needs of some of our most vulnerable community members. Many older Australians approach the end of their life with one or more complex life-limiting chronic conditions such as dementia and advanced heart failure. Supporting person-centred palliative care has become part of core business within the aged care sector, a transition requiring additional education and training. For ten years CareSearch has been developing and providing online access to evidence based resources in palliative care.

In 2017 we launched palliAGED to provide evidence based support in palliative care specific to the needs of older people and the aged care sector.
