Religious and Cultural Resources

The following documents may provide more guidance in preparation for advance care planning with people of different religions and cultures including people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds. Documents were identified in an environmental scan conducted while planning this website. Given the overlap between advance care planning and palliative care with end of life decisions, a variety of resources have been provided.
