Greater Choice for At Home for Palliative Care

The Greater Choice for At Home Palliative Care is a Commonwealth funded measure coordinated through Primary Health Networks. It aims to:

  • improve access to safe, quality palliative care at home and support palliative care systems and services in primary health care and community care,
  • enable the right care, at the right time and in the right place to reduce unnecessary hospitalisations,
  • generate and use data to ensure continuous improvement of services across sectors, and
  • utilise available technologies to provide flexible and responsive care, including care after usual business hours.

The ten Primary Health Networks selected to take part in the trial are:

  • Brisbane South,
  • Central Queensland, Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast,
  • Gold Coast,
  • South Western Sydney,
  • Murrumbidgee,
  • Western New South Wales,
  • North Western Melbourne,
  • Eastern Melbourne,

  • Country Western Australia.

This trial runs until June 2020.
