The session will cover ‘What is ELDAC?’ , ‘How to use ELDAC resources and toolkits’ , ELDAC Digital innovations and the eight domains of the ELDAC Care Model: Bereavement, Advance Care Planning, Recognise End of Life, Assess Palliative Care Needs, Provide Palliative Care, Work Together, Respond to Deterioration, and Manage Dying and diversity considerations. Practical examples of how to integrate the Care Model into your work and use it as a framework to empower staff learning and meet the Aged Care Quality Standards will be given throughout the session. The session aims to give you greater understanding of how ELDAC is useful to your practice and service and confidence to increase end of life literacy for yourself and/or staff, which can support service and individual level capacity building and improve the provision of palliative care and advance care planning for all older Australians.
