Website Launched for End-of-Life Care Planning in Australia

Country Correspondent: Aisha Gomez

In April Australia launched the new End of Life Directions for Aged Care (ELDAC) website to help health professionals access information and resources on palliative care and advanced care planning. It features five toolkits, on topics such as residential aged care, home care, and legal matters. Each contains fact sheets, guides, podcasts, and patient resources. The site also includes a navigation tool to help access local resources, as well as a national free advice phone line. The website was developed by the ELDAC expert consortium, with members from Australia’s Healthcare and Hospitals Association, three universities, and provider and patient groups. The consortium is part of the Australian government’s three-year commitment to improve advance care planning for older adults.
