Consortium Developed Resources

Over the years, the consortium has developed a number of resources to meet the need in the region:

Promoting Quality of Life – Speakers Kit

This resource will assist palliative care services to establish a system to more proactively engage with the community, through training and supporting volunteers and staff to deliver talks to community groups. It includes information on processes to establish, tips on public speaking and a PowerPoint presentation.

Palliative Care Conversations

This program has been developed to train clinicians in generalist health services to understand the palliative care sector better and to improve their skills to have conversations with clients around referral to palliative care. It includes a facilitators guide, a session plan, a PowerPoint presentation and handouts. It is a train-the -trainer resource and can be used by experienced palliative care staff to train their non-palliative care colleagues.

Improving Carers’ Quality Of Life

This resource is aimed at clinicians and helps them to better understand the practical and financial issues around caring for someone with a terminal illness. It includes relevant links to organisations that can assist with finances and practical issues.

Disability Fact Sheet Series

While these fact sheets are aimed at staff in group homes, they can also provide some relevant information for palliative care staff with clients in group homes
