End of Life Directions for Aged Care project launched

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.
