Publication type: Report

In a nutshell: The new report, Triggers for Palliative Care, highlights some of the key reasons people with conditions other than cancer are failing to access palliative care. It cites uncertain disease trajectories and a shortage of research as well as a lack of understanding of what palliative care can offer as some of the barriers. Recommendations include better resourcing from government,  better coordinated care,  improved understanding of palliative care within organisations, and a call for more research.

Length of publication: 44p.
