ACI Framework for the Statewide Model for Palliative and End of Life Care Service Provision
Added: 14 May 2013
This Framework is the first step in developing a statewide model for palliative and end of life care. It describes some of the complexities faced in providing quality palliative and end of life care across a range of acute, sub-acute, primary care and community settings, including the home. It sets the groundwork for further developing the Model of Care by identifying the principles, service definitions and structural arrangements that are required for the delivery of effective, accessible and efficient care to people in NSW who are approaching or reaching the end of life, their families and carers.
Our next step is a significant consultation process across LHDs and with a range of key stakeholders including residential aged care facilities, carer organisations, primary care and specialist palliative care providers. We will also seek the input and expertise of members of the Palliative Care Network and other ACI Networks during this phase. Opportunities to contribute to this Model will be communicated primarily through the ACI Network membership shortly.
