The National LGBTI Health Alliance Project

The National LGBTI Health Alliance (the Alliance) is the national peak health organisation in Australia for organisations and individuals that provide health-related programs, services and research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI) and other sexuality, gender, and bodily diverse people and communities.

The National Palliative Care Project will build the capacity of the palliative care sector to provide culturally appropriate services to LGBTI people through the development of e-learning modules targeted towards General Practitioners and Practice Nurses across Australia. Communities of practice will also be established across Australia. 

The project will also involve the development of resources which aim to increase knowledge and awareness of palliative care within LGBTI communities. 

These strategies aim to improve the quality of, and access to, palliative care services by LGBTI people.
