The End of Life Directions for Aged Care (ELDAC) project aims to improve the care of older Australians. Health professionals and aged care workers can access information, guidance and resources to support palliative care and advance care planning for older people and their families.
The project is conducted by a national consortium of eight partners – three universities and five national agencies: Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Flinders University of South Australia (FUSA), University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Palliative Care Australia (PCA), Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA), Leading Age Services Australia (LASA), Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA), and Catholic Health Australia (CHA).
To support its aims, ELDAC has engaged a team of facilitators to assist, support and enable health and aged care workers to provide best quality care for older Australians and their families at the end of life. This support is provided at no cost to your organisation
ELDAC facilitators can help to improve the quality of end-of-life care for all older Australians by assisting local and/or regional linkages between aged care, specialist palliative care, primary care and other providers and networks.
At no cost to participating organisations, a facilitator will provide tailored assistance to develop linkages based on strategies for working together. Services will nominate their own level of participation, involvement and commitment, and will determine their own objectives and activities relevant to their organisation.
