The North and West Metropolitan Region Palliative Care Consortium has updated the Palliative Care Services Summary (2014) for the north and west metropolitan region.

It provides a summary of Palliative Care services offered in the region. If you have a previous version (2013), please update with the 2014 version as there have been a number of changes.

A new addition is a page of clinical indicators which may assist in identifying if a person requires specialist palliative care.

It is aimed at health professionals who are seeking information about how and when to refer people with a terminal illness to a palliative care service in the region. It is not intended for clients or carers.

The consortium hopes you will find the document useful.

North East Healthy Communities acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land we work on. We pay our respects to their Elders both past and present and acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first people of this nation.
