Terms and Conditions of Use

Please take the opportunity to read this important Notice

The palliAGEDnurse App (the ‘App’) are managed by CareSearch, Flinders University, and funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care. The App is designed to support nurses caring for older people with palliative care needs living in residential aged care or in their own homes.

Editorial control over the content contained within the App is exercised by the National CareSearch Advisory and Review groups. Details on these groups can be found on the Acknowledgements page of the palliAGED website:

Information and Content

Although we have attempted to ensure the information published in the App, including all content, research data, surveys, forums/chat rooms and commentary (hereafter ‘Information’), is as accurate and complete as possible, such Information may change from time to time. This may be because further research is developed and becomes available. Practice may also vary according to what is available locally (e.g., medications) and the experience and expertise of local health professionals. In addition, the Information is necessarily of a general nature, and health professionals should use their best clinical judgement in the way in which it is used. Clinical information and materials in the App do not, and are not intended to, replace clinical judgement.

Individual health professionals remain responsible for:

  • Comprehensive assessment of the patient, ensuring the appropriateness and suitability of the guidance material available on the App; and
  • Providing care within their scope of practice, meeting all legislative requirements, and maintaining standards of professional conduct.


Individuals should always seek professional medical care and advice as required.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, we make no warranties, expressed or implied, regarding errors or omissions in the Information. We assume no liability or responsibility for any injury, loss or damage resulting from the use of or reliance upon the Information provided in the App. All access to and use of the Information is at the risk of the user.

In the App, we may provide links to other websites. The inclusion of these links does not mean that they or the information, products, or services contained in those websites are endorsed or recommended by us. We do not exercise any control over the content on these websites, and you are subject to the other website's applicable privacy policy and terms when you leave our App. We do not endorse, and will not be liable, for the content or use of adapted products that are incorporated on other websites. We are not responsible for the use of a link where a commercial charge applies. Individual users are responsible for any charges that their use may incur. 

We are not influenced by sponsorship, and express advertising or implied endorsement for any commercial products or services is strictly prohibited. Reference on our App to any specific commercial products, process, service, manufacturer, company, or trademark does not constitute its endorsement or recommendation by us.

These advertisements were most likely produced by other websites you visited or by third-party software installed on your computer. We do not endorse or recommend products or services for which you may see a pop-up advertisement on your computer screen while visiting our website.

The Privacy Act 1988 (‘Privacy Act’) and the Australian Privacy Principles (‘APPs’) generally apply to the private sector and all health service providers. Although the University is not bound to comply with the Privacy Act, it has adopted a Privacy Policy and is committed to applying best practice to the protection of individuals’ privacy by upholding the APPs as set out in the Privacy Act and applying substantially the same processes and thresholds to data breaches as if it were bound by the Privacy Act.

Your email address and personal details will only be used by us for the purpose for which you have provided it. Your email address will not be added to any mailing lists without your permission.

No attempt will be made to identify individual users or their interactions except where required by law.

Notwithstanding this, you should be aware that there are inherent risks associated with the use of the Internet for the transmission of personal or private information. We disclaim any liability for such risks to the extent that they are outside of our reasonable control and otherwise we disclaim liability to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The App does not have the functionality to retain or store any personal information within the App or in the back-end server. The University will only record your email address and personal information if you choose to:

  • Send us a message via direct email; or
