Information on Advance Care Planning, Palliative Care and Palliative Care in Aged Care

palliAGEDgp   This smartphone app supports GPs who are caring for older palliative patients living at home or in residential care. As most deaths are expected, death can be planned for and the required care delivered in a pre-emptive fashion. General practitioners (GPs) have a central role in planning and providing for that care.
