Consultation on Palliative Care Tip Sheets and resource for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
Closing date: 8th April 2020
Palliative Care Queensland (PCQ) has subcontracted Health Consumers Queensland to provide an opportunity for people in Coen and Thursday Island (or another Torres Strait Island) to hear from their local community in relation to the development of appropriate tip sheets for community consultation regarding palliative care.
Purpose of the consultation
Palliative Care Queensland is developing the two tip sheets for Palliative Care Australia (PCA).
1. Tip sheet for Aboriginal community consultancy regarding palliative care
2. Tip sheet for Torres Strait Islander community consultancy regarding palliative care
Palliative Care Queensland will be providing consumer feedback to Palliative Care Australia regarding their resource: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander discussion starter.
This is your opportunity to have a yarn with your community members to ensure the tip sheets and resource are culturally appropriate and in language they will understand.
How do we do this?
Our way of doing this consultation is using Kitchen Table Discussions which are community engagement sessions led by local people for local people. They allow small groups to participate in discussions at a time of day that suits them. The discussions enable health consumers, carers and community members who do not ordinarily participate in healthcare consultation to have their say in a safe and supportive environment. The Host guides the discussion with a set of questions provided to them and provides the feedback to Health Consumers Queensland.
Because of COVID-19, our consumer hosts are holding their sessions online. Some are making phone calls and some are using Zoom or Skype to meet with their community members.
We are happy for you to do this consultation in the way that works most appropriately for you and your community.
Who are we looking for as Hosts?
We would like our hosts to be people with strong community connections who can bring up to 10 people together for the discussion.
