Queensland Health is committed to improving health services for Queenslanders in areas of need. One such area is community-based end-of-life care, especially in rural and remote parts of the state. PallConsult has been designed to boost the ability of local healthcare teams to deliver patient-centred palliative care.
PallConsult is part of a larger Queensland Health initiative aiming to enhance delivery of community-based palliative care services with the use of telehealth resources and tailored vocational education. PallConsult will enable people in the last year of their life to access the right care, at the right time and in the setting of their choice. This factsheet explains more about the project.
The aim of PallConsult is for Metro South Palliative Care Service specialists to outreach and build capacity across Queensland for community-based clinicians to provide quality care for people approaching end of life and wishing to remain at home.
