Discussion Starters for Advance Care Planning
Palliative Care Australia’s (PCA) Discussion Starter series and Card packs have been developed to normalise early conversations about end-of-life in communities rather than waiting until more time-critical or medical-focused discussions need to occur. These resources have been developed to help Australians work out what’s right for them if they were to become very sick or at the end of their lives.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Discussion Starter – Working Out What’s Right for You
The Discussion Starter and card pack has been developed for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples and their community, and those working with them. It was made in partnership by Palliative Care Australia (PCA) and the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives, Australian Indigenous Doctor’s Association and Indigenous Allied Health Australia and others.

What Matters Most for Older Australians
The What Matters Most for Older Australians resources are available on the Palliative Care Australia website. They can assist older people to work out what is right for them if they were diagnosed with a life limiting condition.

Working Out What’s Right for You
This Discussion Starter and card pack has been developed by Palliative Care Australia (PCA), and trialled in collaboration with the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, to support people living in rural and remote Australia, as well as those in urban settings. This resource can be used regardless of where people, clinicians, carers or healthcare workers are located – in rural, remote, regional or metro locations. It is also able to be used as a resource for community discussions. For more information on Working out What’s Right for You please click here.
