Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, palliAGED was developed by the CareSearch Project Team at Flinders University, South Australia, and launched in 2017.
This updated resource consolidates and replaces the information contained in the Guidelines for a Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care (APRAC) and the Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting (COMPAC). palliAGED is based on a robust quality process to ensure the trustworthiness of the information and collaboration with the aged care sector to ensure relevance. This has been recognised with HONcode certification.
Vision and mission
To provide evidence-based information to the aged care workforce, and older Australians seeking information about palliative care.
How palliAGED can help
palliAGED community resources provide information on palliative care and end of life care and on services and resources that can help the person and their families. Additional support for care of people of all ages can be found on the CareSearch website.
