Welcome to End-of-Life Essentials. Most people in Australia will visit an acute hospital in their last year of life. Many of them will die in hospital. This website provides e-learning opportunities and resources for doctors, nurses and allied health professionals to improve the quality and safety of end-of-life care in hospitals. 
Six modules will help you develop the skills to recognise end-of-life issues, to enhance your communication strategies and to gain confidence in caring for these patients and their families.  
The development of a personal toolkit will sustain and support what you have learned in the education modules and help you to apply this knowledge in your practice.  
The project is designed to introduce elements of the National Consensus Statement: Essential elements for safe and high-quality end-of-life care. You can find out more about the Consensus Statement, the project and the team in this section.
