caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families

The caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families project aims to support the provision of palliative care at home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The project works to help connect family, culture, community, Country and the spiritual wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people when care at home is preferred.

The Palliative Care Clinic Box

Following 18 months of national consultations, a Palliative Care Clinic Box has been developed which contains a suite of tailored resources to support the provision of at-home palliative care symptom management for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Clinic Box includes:

  • a suite of hard copy resources that will be applicable for use Australia-wide by clinical services, health professionals and families
  • a USB with short training videos
  • practice demonstration kits to teach carers how to give subcutaneous (applied under the skin) medicines.

Appropriate resources can be selected from the Clinic Box to meet the individual needs of the family.

Funding

The caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care and conducted by a consortium led by the Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative. Other members of the consortium include the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet, Palliative Care Australia and the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives.
