Queensland Health is committed to improving the health of Queenslanders in areas of need. One such area is palliative and end-of-life care.
PallConsult has been designed to boost the capacity of local healthcare teams to deliver patient-centred palliative and end-of-life care. It does this by providing 24/7 telephone advice hotlines and tailored education, mentoring and resources for health and aged care professionals.
By doing this, PallConsult supports people in the last year of their life to receive the right care, at the right time, in the setting of their choice, if possible and reduces unwanted presentations to acute care facilities. This factsheet explains more about PallConsult.
PallConsult provides clinical outreach services to build capacity across Queensland for local clinicians to provide quality care for people approaching end of life and wishing to remain at home. The PallConsult team comprises medical and nursing specialists from the Metro South Palliative Care Service.
