This program, funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), aimed to develop an appropriate model of palliative care for Indigenous peoples in the NT. The program developed a generic model for Indigenous palliative care that could be used nationally. This program was guided by insights from Indigenous people and health care workers. The model developed by this program reflects the diversity of issues facing palliative care service providers, including the needs, obstacles, resources, geography, populations and service aims. The book The living model: a resource manual for Indigenous palliative care service delivery provides information on the findings and recommendations of this program.
