Empowering aged and primary care teams to support people living with dementia
End-of-life planning (advance care planning) and palliative care are important aspects of care for people living with dementia and their families.
It has been identified that people living with dementia and their carers often don’t have the opportunity to discuss advance care planning and access to palliative care, resulting in unmet needs.
In fact, frontline aged and primary care staff report a lack of confidence and skills in advance care planning and palliative care provision for people living with dementia, and a need for practical resources.
Our dementia training and resources have been specifically created for clinicians, managers, and careworkers in aged and primary care settings, to build greater confidence, capacity, and skills.
