caring@home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Families is a national palliative care project, funded by the Australian Government, which aims to support the provision of palliative care at home for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. When care at home is preferred, it can be provided to help connect family, culture, community, Country and spiritual wellbeing.
Tailored, culturally appropriate caring@home resources are being developed for clinical services, including Aboriginal Medical Services, to use with families to support palliative care provision in the community, including:
- Policy documents for clinical services
- Health professional online education
- Information and tools to teach families about aspects of palliative care, including how to manage breakthrough symptoms safely with subcutaneous medicines.

We’re a specialist industry super fund dedicated to people who provide some of the best health and community services in the world.
With more than 900,000 members and $64 billion invested on their behalf, we’ve learned a thing or two about looking after our members.
We stand alongside our members, advocating for a super system that better caters for people working in your sector.
As an industry super fund we work for members – not shareholders. We keep our fees down, costs low, and provide commission-free advice. That way more money stays in our members’ super accounts working for their future.
The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) is Australia’s largest national union and professional nursing and midwifery organisation.
In collaboration with the ANMF’s eight state and territory branches, we represent the professional, industrial and political interests of over 300,000 nurses, midwives and carers across the country.
Our members work in the public and private health, aged care and disability sectors across a wide variety of urban, rural and remote locations. We work with them to improve their ability to deliver safe and best practice care in each and every one of these settings, fulfil their professional goals and achieve a healthy work/life balance.
Our strong and growing membership and integrated role as both a trade union and professional organisation provide us with a complete understanding of all aspects of the nursing and midwifery professions and see us uniquely placed to defend and advance our professions.
Through our work with members we aim to strengthen the contribution of nursing and midwifery to improving Australia’s health and aged care systems, and the health of our national and global communities.
Meals on Wheels have been helping Tasmanians for more than 60 years by delivering nourishing meals to the doors of those who need assistance to remain living independently in their own homes.

We cater for all dietary and texturing requirements.
Tasmanian Hand Sanitiser originated as an idea between two Tasmanian Pharmacists in early 2020. Born and bred in the north of the state, Matthew Will and Martin Quinn wanted to manufacture a pharmaceutical grade product using local suppliers. To assist setting up a local distribution network the pair brought Tasmanian businessman Charles Beaumont on board. Together the three formed M2 Logistics, based in Launceston, which now co-ordinates manufacture and supply of Tasmanian Hand Sanitiser to the local and national market.
Since March 2020 the team have co-ordinated manufacture and distribution of over 80,000L of medical grade Hand Sanitiser. In addition to this they also provide a wide range of cleaning and sanitation products as well as PPE. They continue to expand their service to meet the needs of customers all over Australia. Clients include the Tasmanian Government, Australian Antarctic Division, TT-Line, University of Tasmania and numerous sporting clubs and organisations as well as businesses all over Australia.
The Pharmacy Guild in Tasmania represents community pharmacy owners who are focused on supporting their patients’ health journey through the provision of an increasingly wide range of professional services, underpinned by pharmacy’s unique role in medication management and safety.
Community pharmacies are a vital part of our health system with the potential to make even bigger contributions to the health of all Australians, as demonstrated by their ongoing participation in the COVID-19 vaccination rollout.
