Palliative care as a specialty continues to evolve in Australia and this has resulted in community expectations that people with a life-limiting illness can live until they die in an atmosphere of care and support. These guidelines, approved by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), are already making a difference to care across Australia.
A poor or limited social network increased the risk of dementia by 60%.
Indigenous Australians' access to health care has gradually improved through the establishment of Indigenous Australian community-controlled health organizations that are able to offer culturally appropriate and accessible care.
Across Australia, few services are funded specifically to provide a palliative approach to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander peoples.
