Journey to dreaming toolkit

This Toolkit refers to the sensitive, but very important topic of dying and death. Its purpose is to provide high quality information to help Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and their healthcare workers provide family-centred palliative and end-of-life care for a loved one. It also contains some important information that might be useful for individuals needing end-oflife care.

Palliative care can be a difficult subject to think and talk about. Everyone is different, and so every conversation needs to be tailored to support a person’s individual needs. This Toolkit helps promote open, honest ways to yarn that builds trust and can help the healthcare team enhance the quality of life of the person, and their family, by supporting personal choices that are respectful of family and culture (IPEPA, 2020).
