The Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) Consumer and Patient experience Unit have partnered with the NSLHD Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Service to create a unique and culturally appropriate and tailored version of the Australian Charter of Health Care Rights (the Charter).
By implementing the six end-of life care actions in the Comprehensive Care Standard, health service organisations are laying the foundations to support the delivery of safe and high-quality end-of-life care that is person-centred and comprehensively meets the needs of the patient. These six actions can be linked to the 10 essential elements of the Consensus Statements. This resource sets out some suggested implementation strategies.
This report describes the findings of a national stocktake of health resources developed for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, undertaken by the Cultural and Indigenous Research Centre Australia (CIRCA).
