End of Life Care

The Greater Choice for at Home Palliative Care measure (GCfAHPC) provides funding for coordinating palliative care through PHNs. As being cared for and dying at home is most people’s preference, the initiative aims to help make that possible. A recent Palliative Care Needs Assessment identified the need for an End of Life Coordinator, a role that will be commissioned in a pilot program in the Hunter region.

The PHN will seek suitable qualified organisations with existing capacity and experience in delivering palliative care services to establish the End of Life Coordinator pilot program through a Request for Proposal (RFP). This will be released later this year and the PHN expects services to be established and operational by April 2024.
