Australian Healthcare Associates (AHA) 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 focusses on nine groups of people who are under-served or have complex needs.
If you are from one (or more) of these groups, AHA would like to hear from you – whether you have experience of palliative care services or not.
We’d like to hear your thoughts on end of life and palliative care, barriers to access, and how services could be improved. You can talk to us on the phone or in person, or be part of a group discussion. Anything you tell us will be kept anonymous.
To be involved, or for more information, please:
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness. This is done through the prevention and relief of suffering by early identification, assessment and treatment of pain and other physical, psychosocial and spiritual problems (World Health Organization).
