As we continue to navigate our way through the changing health care environment, we’ve developed a range of resources to support any health care professional during this time.

We’ve drawn on the collective knowledge and experience of the palliative care sector to provide practical and clinically reviewed resources as well as a range of websites that might be helpful at this time.

Key websites to visit regularly
NZ based sites that have a wide variety and focus of information:
Resources for Aotearoa

Support for front line workers during the pandemic – self care

We appreciate that front line health workers are currently facing many challenges in their roles caring for people who are dying across all settings.  The effect of social distancing on how care has to be provided and how a patients family and whānau are able to be involved are having a significant impact on health care workers across all settings.

We suggest that in the first instance you look to your workplace EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) for advice and support.

Below are some links that staff and those leading teams may find useful as we navigate the challenges of the current situation:
