We recently received funding to design, implement, and evaluate a new palliative care service for people with intellectual disability. This is important because people with intellectual disability often find it hard to access palliative care tailored to their needs.
The team would like to hear from people with an intellectual disability, their support networks, and health professionals.
Their experiences will be used to help us design a new model of palliative care which will be tested in 2022 in the South Western Sydney Local Health District.
