End of Life Care Awareness Survey

WA Primary Health Alliance is working to improve access to safe, quality palliative care at home through a Compassionate Communities project. Compassionate Communities is an international public health project the aim of which is to engage broad community support for people approaching the end of their lives.

This survey aims to gather information to understand how our community, including our workplaces, support each other through times of dying, death and loss and how we are discussing and planning for our future care needs.

We know for many this may be a confronting topic to be talking about, however it is an important subject which we will all have to face eventually. The information you share will help inform future community awareness campaigns.
