Special Interest Group Objectives
• Serve as a collaborative network for those with an interest in palliative medicine for older people.
• Identify dominant challenges in providing palliative care for older people and support others to determine responses.
• Provide advocacy around palliative needs for older people.
The SIG is currently working with Palliative Medicine and Geriatric Medicine Advanced Trainees to write a joint Position Statement with ANZSGM on Palliative Care for Older People. The group provided input to relevant policy documents and other enquiries, including the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety in Australia.
