Barriers to accessing palliative care

Do you work with under-served populations or people with complex needs?

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.

We are interested in your views even if palliative care is not part of your work.

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.

If you or your organisation work with any of these groups, in any context, we want to hear from you!

We want to hear from a wide range of people and organisations across all sectors (not just health) so that we can build up a more comprehensive understanding of the barriers to palliative care and how they can be addressed.

How you can help

  1. Complete the survey

The survey closes on 24 June 2018.

Please note: The survey is designed for organisational stakeholders (including staff and volunteers) rather than palliative care patients, families or community members. We will be conducting focus groups and interviews with community members later in the project.
