Participant comments

  • "I think the greatest revelation has been for all involved in the ELDAC Working Together program is the realisation that a good palliation experience starts long before the process of dying begins. That it is about living just as much, if not more, then about dying. I know for staff, the experience has not only had impact on their work practice, but also their personal lives."

    Kathleen Lawrie, Facility Manager, Ozcare De Paul Villa
  • "Collaboration with the ELDAC facilitator has been a richly rewarding opportunity from the organisational perspective and a unique growth experience at each home. Enhancing linkages between the ELDAC Working Together program best practice information ensures Registered Nurses and medical practitioners are able to access relevant and up-to-date information at any time."
