Planning for End of Life publication series
Professor Colleen Cartwright developed a publication and a seminar series for Dementia Australia to provide a guide to people with dementia and their families and carers about the legal options that people have available to them to plan their end of life care.
The publications and seminars are now available online and are relevant for people with dementia, family carers and other family members, community care and residential care providers; and other health care professionals.
The papers are available below:
- Planning for End of Life for People with Dementia - Part 1
Part 1 discusses issues including palliative care, refusal of treatment, pain control, resuscitation, residential care, advance financial planning and enduring power of attorney.
