End of Life Direction for Aged Care (ELDAC)

 

 

 

End of Life Directions for Aged Care (ELDAC) provides information, guidance, and resources to health professionals and aged care workers to support palliative care and advance care planning to improve the care of older Australians.

ACSA is part of the national consortium of eight partners that conduct ELDAC and its national specialist palliative care and advance care planning advisory service. This service comprises a comprehensive website and a telephone advisory service. These resources will equip care providers with skills and information to help older Australians receive high-quality end of life care in familiar surroundings with little or no need for hospitalisation.

ACSA supports the project by building capacity of line aged care service providers and providing access to toolkits and online and phone support.
