We are developing a new and innovative Palliative Care Services Plan and Model of Care Framework for South Australia and we would like your input.

What's being decided?

We are seeking input from the South Australian public and palliative care stakeholders to ensure that the new Palliative Care Services Plan and Model of Care Framework can meet the needs of our community and support us to deliver on the vision of the Palliative Care Strategic Framework 2022-2027.

All South Australians, their families and carers have access to and receive the best possible end of life and palliative care that places the person at the centre of care and supports them to live and die well in accordance with their individual needs, wishes, values and preferences.”

Background

What has been done so far?

South Australia’s Palliative Care Strategic Framework was launched in December 2021 and contained:

  • a vision and goals for the palliative care service system in South Australia
  • four priority areas
  • specific actions that we will commit to over the next 5 years to shape the palliative care system so that more people can die well in South Australia

What is happening now?

Following the successful launch of the Strategic Framework, we are now developing a Palliative Care Services Plan and Model of Care Framework for South Australia.

This Services Plan and Model of Care Framework will make recommendations regarding how SA Health can continue building and improving palliative care services in South Australia over the next 5 years.

We are keen to hear about how the health system works for people with a life limiting illness receiving palliative care or for family members and carers providing support, as well as from those working within the palliative care system.

We are committed to ensuring the Services Plan and Model of Care Framework are representative of the needs and perspectives of the South Australian population and so we need your input.

This page will be active for the entirety of the project, with regular updates to be shared and additional opportunities for engagement to be announced.

More information on the purpose of each of these opportunities for engagement can be found in the individual modules. Please remember to provide your input in a respectful manner and with consideration of yours and other people’s privacy.

What are the next steps?
