Feedback sought on community palliative care

Brisbane North PHN is conducting a situation analysis of community palliative care in the Brisbane North region and is seeking your feedback.

Designed to complement the Metro North Hospital and Health Service Palliative Care Clinical Services Plan 2017-2022, the situation analysis aims to identify and understand the specific community palliative care issues to be addressed in the primary, community and residential aged care sectors. To achieve this, it will look at:

  • examples of quality care and potential problems, their severity and cause
  • the people affected
  • the broad context in which quality care or problems exist
  • factors inhibiting or facilitating change.

Emma White, Sector Collaboration Lead at Brisbane North PHN said that the situation analysis will point the way to possible solutions and priority actions for the delivery of effective community palliative care in the
Brisbane North region.

Participatory stakeholder workshops for the situation analysis will be held over the coming months.
