Help us develop the Statewide Palliative Care Services Plan 2021-26 and provide you with an improved palliative care experience

What’s being decided?

We want to know your experiences in palliative care during 2020, either as a patient, unpaid carer or health professional.

Palliative care is focused on managing symptoms which may have occurred on their own, or while receiving other medical treatments. It can be provided from a palliative care team, your General Practitioner, in a hospital or at a Residential Care facility.

COVID 19 has significantly impacted the way palliative care is provided and experienced. We want to understand what is working well and how we can improve the delivery of palliative care in South Australia.

Whether you are:

  • a patient who has been receiving palliative care in 2020
  • an unpaid carer who has provided palliative care in 2020. 
  • a health professional or volunteer who has provided palliative care in 2020.

We would like to hear from you.

To have your say:

How can your input influence the decision?

Your feedback will inform the development of the Statewide Palliative Care Services Plan 2021-2026.

What are the next steps?

Summary results from the survey will be analysed by the Statewide Palliative Care Clinical Network within the Commission on Excellence and Innovation in Health (CEIH) to inform the development of the Statewide Palliative Care Services Plan 2021-2026.

Once developed, the Statewide Palliative Care Services Plan 2021-2026 will be available for comment on this and the CEIH websites.
