This study will promote awareness of community-based palliative care among consumers and their carers. It involves: identifying the questions, concerns, illusions, misrepresentations, and falsehoods that consumers and carers have about community-based palliative care; addressing these via an audio-video resource; and determining the perceived impact of this resource. Pending the findings, the audio-video resource will then be shared across and beyond the South Western Sydney Local Health District to promote awareness of community-based palliative care, and relatedly, death literacy.
