Dying to Talk encourages Australians of all ages and levels of health to talk about dying.
Despite being something that touches everyone, death doesn’t receive enough visibility. Dying to Talk aims to reach into the community to normalise dying in Australia and to help Australians work out what’s right for them at the end of their lives.
Having a conversation with your loved ones about your end-of-life wishes will help them to make decisions on your behalf should you be unable to communicate your wishes.
The Dying to Talk Discussion Starter guides you through talking with your loved ones.
General Practitioners often provide care for patients with lifelimiting conditions. Being able to more effectively participate in this care can be personally and professionally rewarding and has the potential to substantially improve patients’ quality of life. There is now a great opportunity for GPs with an interest in palliative care to further increase their skills and learn from palliative care specialists in a supported environment through PEPA - the Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach. PEPA is a national educational project to enhance confidence, experience, knowledge and skills in the palliative approach through: funded and supervised clinical placements and interactive workshops; integration of learning into the workplace; and establishing networks of support. There is financial support available for successful PEPA applicants, including contributions towards backfill and travel.
More information about the PEPA programme and the application process are available at:
To discuss PEPA or the different ways in which you or your practice could become more involved in palliative care, contact Dr Andrew Broadbent. Andrew is the clinical director of palliative
care for the GCHHS and can be contacted on 07 5687 2702 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Palliaged provide information on their website relating to the range of national palliative care projects the Australian Government funds that are primarily focused on education, training, quality improvement and advance care planning. Many of these have speciifc resources for aged care and primary care.
