10 Questions to Ask Now Available in 15 other languages

These newly translated resources were launched at Parliament House today in Canberra which was attended by our CEO Kirsty Blades and our Management Committee CALD Champion, Carmen Sanchez.

10 Questions is a series of leaflets written by nurses, doctors and experts with experience in aged care.

The series includes a dedicated leaflet on 10 Questions to ask about Palliative Care in Residential Aged Care which was developed in consultation with Palliative Care NSW and a number of other supporting organisations.
