The PHH consultancy service is available to all Residential Aged Care Facilities (RACF) within our region. There is opportunity for RACF staff to access advice and support for residents experiencing complex or unexpected end of life issues.
Our consultancy service aims to work with the RACF staff to assess the resident/families and staffs’ current concerns and assist in developing recommended care plans to assist the staff in achieving improved quality of life for their residents.
PHH supports the implementation of the Commonwealth Government’s Guidelines for a Palliative Approach in Residential Aged Care Facilities and working with facility nurses to strengthen the palliative approach for all residents.
The process of providing a specialist assessment and recommendations to RACF, also provides opportunity for informal learning by RACF staff and consolidation of general palliative care principles.
