What can we do to help Australians die the way they want to?


Australians are not dying as they would wish. Surveys consistently show that between 60% and 70% of Australians would prefer to die at home, and that residential care facilities are their least preferred options.1

Dignity, control, and privacy are important for a good death. Choice over who will be present, where people will die and what services they will get matters.


Learning Outcomes

  1. Initiate an end-of-life conversation with patients and encourage to plan and prepare for their own death and reflect on what is needed for good end-of-life care
  2. Consider how a different service mix could better meet end-of-life care needs for little additional cost
