My Information Kit

My Information Kit allows you to select factsheets to print out for your patients or their carers. It includes a cover sheet that you can write your contact details on. 

You can also save the factsheets as a pdf to your computer, and then email them to a patient, carer or colleague (Only select three factsheets at a time otherwise the file is too big to send via email).

Many of these Factsheets have been produced by CareSearch. The others are provided with permission from: the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement (ACGB); Palliative Care Australia (PCA) and Carers NSW. You can find further information and resources on their websites.

To print out a selection of documents from the list below, please tick boxes for items you wish to print.
