The Palliative Care resource page is a Country SA PHN initiative as a part of the Commonwealth’s Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care Program (2022-2025).
We aim to support Country SA people, their families, carers, and healthcare professionals, to access palliative & end of life care with a focus on quality, safety, and culturally appropriate at-home services.
Advanced care planning allows health professionals to understand and respect a person's future healthcare preferences, for a time when they become seriously ill and unable to communicate for themselves.
Make a referral to Advance Care Planning Support Service for your patient, or their family, or their carer for individual support.
