TIitle: Building Compassionate Communities: community development approaches to palliative care

SUMMARY: Most people say they want to die at home, yet most don’t. Older carers, far-flung families, and social isolation are all factors in this; limited health care resources are available for expanding palliative care services to support people to be cared for at home. Compassionate Communities is an approach to the support of people nearing the end of life and those who care for them that addresses two key factors: rethinking our models of care and building community capacity for compassionate care. With its foundations in compassion and reform, the palliative care sector is well-placed to implement community development approaches to end-of-life care with a Compassionate Communities framework.

John Rosenberg bio: Dr John Rosenberg is a Registered Nurse with a clinical background in community-based palliative care. He is a Research Fellow at the NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence in End-of-Life Care at Queensland University of Technology. John has undertaken his PhD and post-doctoral research in the field of public health and palliative care, including health promotion and community engagement. He advocates for healthy dying through partnerships between empowered, skilled communities and services providing end-of-life care.

Terry Ayling bio: Terry Ayling is Facilitator of Compassionate Gold Coast and a Member of the Australian Compassion Council of the Global Charter for Compassion. He is also the Spiritual Care Coordinator of both Gold Coast Health's Spiritual Care Service and of Hopewell Hospice Services. After 25 years as a Uniting Church minister and chaplain in community, school, tourism, residential aged care, and hospital-hospice settings, Terry resigned so that he could work in the growing secular, multi-sectorial, 'spiritual not religious' context. Terry serves on GCH EOL Committee and QH Care at the End of Life State Project Group and on the QLD Compassionate Communities Advisory Council.
