Innovations in care at end of life were showcased at the first Queensland Care at End of Life Innovators Workshop in Brisbane today.
Bringing together teams from across the state, the workshop allowed project leads to share their learnings from trialing and developing new ways to deliver best-practice care at end of life.
Proudly supported by Clinical Excellence Queensland, the seven SEED (Support, Explore, Excel and Deliver) projects are stimulating novel approaches to the delivery of care, and helping to translate the Statewide strategy for end-of-life care into action.
“In just two years the SEED funding has made a substantial difference to the way care at end of life is delivered to Queenslanders,” Allison Lovell, Care at End of Life Project Team manager said.
“Projects have or are currently exploring the experiences of bereaved family members, using community engagement to inform service improvement, working to support people who wish to die at home and establishing clear pathways of care for children who are dying in hospital. These are only the beginning, and by sharing their learnings teams can help support each other to reach their full potential.”
The third round of SEED funding is now open for projects in 2019-2020. While applications are only accepted from Queensland Health services, collaboration with non-government organisations is encouraged.
