Caring@home Resources (Sub Cutaneous & Medicine resources for Carers)
caring@home (2018 – 2021) and caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families (2020 – 2023) projects are funded by the Australian Government and led by the Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative.
These projects aim to improve the quality of palliative care service delivery for all Australians by developing resources to support carers and families to help manage end-of-life symptoms for a person at home including safely using subcutaneous medicines.
caring@home resources are applicable Australia-wide for clinical services, health professionals and carers/families.
The carers kit was developed to help Carers by providing simple instructions on how to perform basic tasks safely, such as how to use shower and bath chairs safely and how to help a person in and out of a car. All of the literature can be found here: Carers Kit_Web
