The Discussion Starter Cards have been developed as an ice-breaker tool to ease health professionals and families into a conversation about end of life preferences. These working out what’s right for you statements can be less intimidating than direct questions. The cards may also help families speak with each other and their community.
The Yarning Companion has been developed to support health professionals to start a conversation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about their end of life preferences for their child, or young person.
The card statements focus on the person, their health and end of life preferences. The Yarning Companion is a facilitation and reflection tool for health professionals and families to support open dialogue.
