There are many exciting advance care planning projects underway across Australia. This page is under development but will be regularly updated.

 

ACPTalk is a website to support health professionals in sensitive religious and cultural advance care planning conversations. A search function provides information on religious background and beliefs, practices, disclosure of medical prognosis, language and other advice. Additional information includes discussion scripts, law, and useful links.

Death and dying will affect all of us. The CareSearch website provides trustworthy information about palliative care and advance care planning for patients, carers and families as well as for the health professionals providing their care. Just as trustworthy information can help patients and families understand what is happening and make decisions, research evidence helps clinicians provide the best possible care.

This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health from January 2015 to Jun 2017

Dying to Talk encourages Australians of all ages and levels of health to talk about dying.
Despite being something that touches everyone, death doesn’t receive enough visibility. Dying to Talk aims to reach into the community to normalise dying in Australia and to help people work out what’s right for them at the end of their lives.
Having a conversation with your loved ones about your end-of-life wishes will help them to make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to communicate your wishes. The Dying to Talk Discussion Starter guides you through talking with your loved ones.
Talking about dying might be difficult, but it won’t kill you.
This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health from January 2015 to June 2017
