ELDAC has a work stream looking at technology applications. Digital innovations can support aged care workers in providing palliative care and advance care planning to older people at the end of life. One of our projects is developing a prototype Digital Dashboard focusing on end of life indicators. The dashboard will enable basic data collection around processes relevant to end of life care and provide reporting functions relating to these processes and activities.
We are building the dashboard through a co-design process with individuals working in aged care. This will ensure that the dashboard is feasible, relevant and useful. To inform the dashboard workshop we have translated the ELDAC Care Framework into a set of possible care indicators for use in the Digital Dashboard.
The discussion and findings from a workshop held in December 2018 informed dashboard design and data elements. One of the tasks for the attendees was detailing use cases for the possible end of life indicators proposed for inclusion in the Dashboard. They also helped us think about what reports would have value for the aged care sector. Workshop members came from the aged care and palliative care communities.
The ELDAC project team is working with the Flinders Digital Health Centre in developing the initial proposal and concepts and in building a prototype dashboard.
A use case is a written description of an activity, which describes the usual behaviour that enables an interaction between a user and the system. It outlines who are the actors (such as a nurse or a manager) and what are the action (eg find a document or update a record). This provides the basis to identify, clarify, and organise system requirements.
