RAC Hub is changing to meet changing needs
The RAC Hub was developed by CareSearch in collaboration with Aged Care stakeholders and launched in 2011 drawing on the work used to develop the APRAC Guidelines. It was one of the first web resources focusing on palliative care in aged care facilities and led the way in connecting the aged care workforce with quality evidence.
Responding to changes in aged care delivery, in 2016 the Department of Health funded CareSearch to provide a new form of palliative care guidance for aged care – guidance for both residential aged care and home care. In 2017, the palliAGED website
was launched. It was designed to update and replace the APRAC and COMPAC Guidelines
and to be continuously updatable and readily available online. Translating available best evidence into guidance that is both current and practical, palliAGED supports the aged care workforce to make informed care decisions for optimal palliative care.
