Symptom management support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families

Palliative Care Clinic Box is a new and FREE resource launched by caring@home led by Brisbane South Palliative Care Collaborative and funded by the Australian Government.

The Palliative Care Clinic Box draws on 18-months of nationwide consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, and health professionals in specialist and generalist palliative care services, and it is made for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to support at-home palliative care symptom management through a range of tailored, practical tools and information.

*How to use the Palliative Care Clinic Box:

  • The Clinic Box is designed to be stored centrally at the clinic/health service office and contains resources for several patients and families. We recommend you order one (1) Clinic Box per clinic site.
  • Health professionals supporting patients and families can choose which resources are relevant based on the symptoms the patient is experiencing, retrieve copies from the Clinic Box and provide them to the family.
  • The Palliative Care Clinic Box can be kept as a master copy, and resources photocopied as needed, orΒ downloaded here.
