About the project
A summary of the Engagement project is available as a factsheet (305kb pdf)
In mid-2018, selected representatives from the three groups came together for one-day workshops (one workshop per group). These representatives took centre stage and told us the views and specific palliative care information needs of their community or sector. We learnt of the channels that commonly provide them with new information, and how this information moves out to members of their community or sector. They also provided feedback on the format and content of CareSearch and palliAGED palliative care resources, and the best avenues to share these with the community.
Responding to the insights gained, we have created an Action Plan for each group or sector. In November 2018, a workshop summary and the final Action Plan was presented via an online meeting to people who had registered their interest in the project.
During 2019 you will hear more from us through the aged care, allied health, and patient, carer and family community information channels. We will be addressing issues raised in the workshops and providing guidance on how to use the CareSearch and palliAGED resources to support your palliative care information needs.
