On 15 June 2018, the Commonwealth Government formally launched the End of Life Directions for Aged Care (ELDAC) project. The project includes a new website which is intended to be a one-stop resource for support and advice on palliative care and advance care planning.
The website was developed by a consortium of eight partners, which included Australian universities and peak bodies such as Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) and Leading Age Services Australia (LASA). The ELDAC consortium has also developed toolkits as well as a telephone and web-based support service for those working in aged care and primary health care.
