Informing choices for care if faced with serious illness
+61 3 9231 1270
People with serious illness commonly report narrow or limited understandings of palliative care. Despite significant evidence for the benefits of including palliative care in a person’s treatment plan, late engagement with these services remains common.
This study will evaluate the feasibility and preliminary outcomes of using short visual educational stories as the basis of a public health intervention focused on improving general community understanding of palliative care. The results will provide new evidence about optimal approaches to communication about palliative care in future.
