Barriers to accessing palliative care

Australian Healthcare Associates has been engaged by the Australian Government Department of Health to explore the barriers that people may experience in accessing quality palliative care.

The project looks specifically at nine population groups that are under-served or have complex needs:

  • People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI)
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People with a disability
  • People experiencing homelessness
  • Veterans
  • Refugees
  • Prisoners
  • Care leavers (which includes Forgotten Australians, Former Child Migrants and Stolen Generations) and people affected by forced adoption or removal.

The survey is designed for organisational stakeholders has now closed.

We will be conducting focus groups and interviews with community members later in the project. This page will be updated with details as they become available.
