Improving palliative care in aged care
At the Royal Freemasons, Mount Martha Valley (VIC), staff who have undertaken an Aged Care reverse PEPA placement experience have focused on several workplace activities to improve provision of palliative care, including:
- Establishing an up to date Palliative care resources folder for staff, providing toolbox education opportunities
- Establishing a care plan for food services team to assist in providing care of the family of a dying person
- Providing information to staff about CarerHelp and bereavement support networks to assist both the team and the families they assist.
