In 2017-2020 we created and tested an end of life dashboard that could be used by aged services within their own IT systems. The dashboard was developed using a co-design approach with IT experts, aged care staff and decision makers and palliative care representatives. In 2020-2023, we are looking at building awareness of the availability and value of the dashboard and encouraging integration into systems with aged care IT companies.

In the first half of 2021 we developed two videos with an aim of bringing the dashboard to life.
