Palliative Care Pathways

South Australia’s Palliative Care Strategic Framework (2022-2027) recognises that ‘families, and carers, deserve access to, and receive the best possible end of life and palliative care’. To support this, HealthPathways has developed a suite of palliative care pathways and referral pages with input from key members of the Statewide Clinical Network on Palliative Care, as well as experts in the field across SA including a number of GP Clinical Editors.

In development for some time to ensure input from key stakeholders, the HealthPathways SA team hope these clinical pathways will assist dedicated health professionals working in Palliative Care in South Australia to access to up to date clinical information and navigate services:

A number of referral and resource pages are also available:
