The Comprehensive Palliative Care in Aged Care is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth and State and Territory Governments, which has strengthened end of life care in Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF’s) between 2019-2024.

By embedding palliative and end of life care in aged care, the project highlights these skills are core business of RACFs.  All projects share a focus on shared care and workforce education in palliative care, advance care planning, and grief and bereavement.
