Description

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing as part of its National Palliative Care Program, this resource kit has been developed to support the provision of palliative care to Indigenous patients, their families and communities, and to encourage service providers to examine their practice for cultural appropriateness. The kit is the result of direct consultation with palliative care providers and Indigenous people and communities throughout Australia. It contains a folder with information addressing: an introduction to the kit; practice principles; use of the resource; discussion paper; and course information. A cd-rom is also included and contains additional information relating to cultural safety, cultural diversity, and practice examples.
