The Blueprint has been developed to provide a flexible guide for health services to meet the needs of people approaching and reaching the end of life, their families and carers.
This video describes what the Blueprint for Improvement is and the vision for the Blueprint.
This video provides an overview of the resources available in the Blueprint and how to use them.
The Blueprint can be implemented across all care settings. The Blueprint seeks to enhance networks of support, to build skills and competence in providing care to those approaching and reaching the end of their lives across all care settings and seeks to better support patients, families and carers along the way.
This Blueprint was informed by research-based evidence and developed through consultation with more than 1200 clinicians, service managers, researchers, consumers, their families and carers.
The Blueprint is for everybody in NSW. It emphasises the need for an integrated approach to care whereby relationships between specialist palliative care providers and care providers across all care settings. This resource aims to guide services and Local Health Districts in constructing their own, localised models of care. It emphasises that everyone can have a role to play in supporting or providing care to people approaching and reaching the end of life.
