About the Advance Project™ Resources

Once general practice nurses, GPs and practice managers have registered for the Advance ProjectTM they will have access to a range of FREE resources to assist them to initiate palliative care and advance care planning in general practice.

This includes:

The Advance ProjectTM Toolkit

Provides access to all of the individual Advance ProjectTM assessment tools and videos demonstrating how to use the tools.  

The toolkit is a reference guide which is designed to complement the online training, so you have all the information in one place to refer to as needed after completing the online learning modules. It contains the resources that GPs, practice nurses and practice managers will need to get started, practise their skills and incorporate the Advance ProjectTM assessment tools into everyday clinical practice.

The toolkit will enable GPs and/or practice nurses to undertake screening and assessment of patients to:

  • Sensitively promote awareness of advance care planning with older and/or chronically ill adults
  • Identify those patients who may be at risk of deteriorating and dying
  • Assess these patients’ symptoms, important questions and concerns and identify their carers’ concerns
  • Identify patients who might most benefit from referral to a specialist palliative care service.

The toolkit was informed by literature reviews of the best available evidence about tools to support palliative care and advance care planning in general practice, as well as extensive input from our expert advisory group, GPs, general practices nurse, practice managers and consumer representatives.

The Advance ProjectTM Toolkit has been officially recognised as an Accepted Clinical Resource by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and endorsed by the Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) according to approved quality standards criteria.

The Advance ProjectTM Video Suite
