The End of Life and Palliative Care Framework 2019-2024 sets out the vision and future direction for palliative and end of life care for people across NSW.
The Framework describes how people and services can work together to provide accessible, high quality end of life and palliative care. The Framework reflects wide engagement with stakeholders, health professionals and community members.
The five priority areas identified in the Framework are:
- Care is person centred
- There is recognition and support for families and carers
- There is access to care providers across all settings who are skilled and competent in caring for people requiring end of life and palliative care
- Care is well-coordinated and integrated
- Access to quality care is equitable
NSW Health will develop an implementation plan for the Framework and will monitor progress in meeting these priorities.
