NDS has been receiving increasing reports of concerns from sector providers regarding end-of-life care and support for individuals in residential accommodation and through in home support providers. These reports in conjunction with the palliative care sector focus on the needs of people with disabilities to have choices about their end-of-life process that does not include hospitalisation unless essential has led to this consultation opportunity.

NDS, in partnership with the Victorian State-wide Disability and Palliative Care Advisory Group, of which we are a member, invites disability providers, disability advocacy organizations, palliative care coordinators and other key stakeholders to attend and discuss the issues. The Australia wide invitation recognises that while variations in regulatory process exist end-of-life choices and appropriate care are a fundamental right of all people with a disability and common barriers prevent this choice from being fully realised often causing distress to the individual, families, other residents, and workers.

The webinar will include input to highlight key steps involved in end-of-life planning and implementation and gather input on the barriers occurring and examples of what is working well. The information provided will be used to inform key priority actions that can increase positive end of life experiences for all involved and advocacy with government and keyholders where systemic barriers are preventing this from occurring.

Who Should Attend?

Disability sector managers, SIL and residential accommodation workers and providers, in home support providers, palliative care coordinators and other interested key stakeholders
