Palliative Care ACT advocates for, educates on, and facilitates quality palliative care for people in Canberra and the surrounding region. Each year over the last four years, during National Palliative Care Week in the last week of May, Palliative Care ACT has issued a ‘toolkit’. Each toolkit has been designed to provide information and advice, while enhancing curiosity, on issues related to palliative care.
The first two toolkits relate to having a life-limiting illness in the workplace – the first developed for employers and the second developed for employees. These toolkits can be accessed here.
The third toolkit relates to cultural approaches to death and dying and can be accessed here.
The fourth toolkit aims to help carers working with people from LGBTQIA+ communities who have a life-limiting illness and can be accessed here.
