Resources for Aboriginal families
caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families is a national project that aims to support the provision of palliative care at home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. When care at home is preferred, it can be provided to help connect family, culture, community, country and the spiritual wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Following a national consultation and development process some draft resources have been developed to provide a tool to assist Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who choose to be cared for and remain at home for the final stage of their life-course.
Funded by the Australian Government, this project is being conducted by a consortium involving Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, Palliative Care Australia, the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives and led by Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative. You can find out more about the project at www.caringathomeproject.com.au
