The second edition palliAGED Practice Tip Sheets for nurses in aged care have been developed to support nurses new to providing palliative care to older people, and for nurses responsible for training and education of careworkers/personal attendants with this role. The aim is to support understanding about care needs and how these can be met. For health professionals with more experience in palliative care we recommend visiting the palliAGED Evidence in Practice and related Evidence Centre pages for more information and guidance.
You can print or download single Tip Sheets. You can also print a booklet with all 37 Tip Sheets and instructions, or print the cover and instructions for your personal development folder and add the Tip Sheets later. palliAGED Practice Tip Sheets for careworkers can be accessed via the menu to the left of this page. The online versions of palliAGED Practice Tip Sheets are regularly updated to reflect new evidence and we recommend that you regularly check for updates to the information.
To learn more visit the About palliAGED Practice Tip Sheets page, and read the Clinical Disclaimer.
Print individual palliAGED Practice Tip Sheets and the companion list of evidence and resources used in developing the sheets.
