The focus of this funding is for new roles and services that improve the quality of palliative care in aged residential care, primary care and community settings. Extensive consultation with community stakeholders has led to the development of the following new services;

· The establishment of a Palliative Care Clinical Nurse Specialist (PCCNS) role with a gerontology special interest to provide input in hospital level and dementia care Aged Residential Care Facilities (ARCF).

· The establishment of an education programme for informal carers caring for people with life limiting illnesses.
