Decision Assist

Decision Assist logoDecision Assist is funded as part of the Australian Government’s Living Longer, Living Better aged care reform package. It provides specialist palliative care and advance care planning advice and resources to aged care providers and general practitioners caring for recipients of aged care services.

The Decision Assist program draws on the experience of eight consortium partners, with Austin Health as the lead agency. As home of Advance Care Planning Australia (also known as Respecting Patient Choices), Austin Health is recognised as a leader in advance care planning in Australia.

Advance Care Planning Australia and Decision Assist work hand-in-hand, delivering resources for advance care planning, with Decision Assist focused on aged care and general practice, while ACPA has a broader health professional focus.
