The Care at End of Life SEED (Support, Explore, Excel, Deliver) Innovation Program is an initiative that helps to strengthen the capacity of Queensland health services to respond to the needs of those with a progressive life-limiting illness.
SEED funding is accessible to inspirational and creative staff from across Queensland Health to find new and improved ways of delivering care at the end of life for the benefit of our patients, their carers and family members. Now in its fourth year, SEED Innovation Funding continues to build a culture of innovation and excellence from the ground-up. Applications are invited annually, and successful projects:
- Contribute to implementing the statewide end-of-life care strategy 2015.
- Provide new ways of approaching the delivery of services that improve care at the end of life for Queenslander's and where the principles of knowledge translation may be applied.
- Demonstrate partnerships between a Hospital & Health Service and at least one other external stakeholder for example General Practitioner, consumers, non-government organisation, or charity.
