Development of the palliAGEDgp app

This app helps GPs to manage older patients needing a palliative approach to care.

Why do we need palliAGEDgp?

In Australia the demographics of death are changing. Today most people die an expected death from one or a combination of various chronic progressive conditions.The majority of Australians report that they would prefer to be cared for and to die at home, but in reality only a minority achieve this outcome. As most deaths are expected, death can be planned for and required care delivered in a pre-emptive fashion. General practitioners (GPs) have a central role in planning and providing for that care.
