The project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health to support quality care at the end of life. It is delivered by a consortium that brings together three universities and five national bodies from aged care, palliative care and primary care. The project builds linkages between healthcare providers in specialist palliative care services and in the aged care sector.
ELDAC builds on existing work and resources to build awareness and encourage their use. Key resources include the palliative care evidence developed for palliAGED and the expertise of Advance Care Planning Australia.
Vision and mission
The project seeks to promote change enabling a reduction of avoidable hospital admissions, with shortened stays, and improved quality of care.
The mission of the project is to improve the quality of care for people in residential and community aged care settings.
How ELDAC can help
ELDAC aims to connect those working with older Australians in aged care, primary care and palliative care with the quality resources available and to facilitate awareness of, and connection between, services, agencies and groups.
