This project seeks to support the development of a long-term strategy for the implementation of integrated palliative and end of life care services to the Central Coast community. The first phase of the project comprised a series of five stakeholder workshops that examined existing service issues, gaps and key priorities for research projects to be taken forward in the second phase of the project.

In January 2021, three research projects were ‘commissioned’ as follows:

  • Improving the End of Life Care Journey for People with Dementia and their Carers
  • Improving the Experience of Central Coast Residents and Carers who Access Emergency Care Towards the End of Life
  • Models of Care to Support People with Dementia at the End of Life – Rapid Review
