Palliative and
End of Life Care
- A Blueprint for Improvement

“The Blueprint”

This Blueprint was informed by research-based evidence and developed through consultation with more than 1200 clinicians, service managers, researchers, consumers, their families and carers.

Palliative and End of Life Care – A Blueprint for Improvement (“The Blueprint”) has been developed to provide a flexible guide for health services to meet the needs of people approaching and reaching the end of life, their families and carers. The Blueprint can be implemented across all settings of care – acute, subacute, aged and community spanning across public, private, not-for-profit and community sectors.

This online resource aims to guide services and Local Health Districts in constructing their own, localised models of care. It emphasises that everyone can have a role to play in supporting or providing care to people approaching and reaching the end of life.
