End-of-life care affects all of us, at every age. Cabrini has launched a new website focused on supporting healthcare professionals in conducting advance care planning with people of different religious and cultural backgrounds. The project received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health. The website called ACPTalk is freely available to all.
