Palliative Care Victoria have created an English language brochure about palliative care called “Palliative Care – Helping people with life-limiting illness live well”. It has been translated into 17 languages. ​

The brochure answers the following questions:

  • What is palliative care?

  • Who provides palliative care?

  • Where can I receive care?

  • Will I have to pay?

  • What if I need to speak another language?

  • What about my family?

  • Where can I get more information?

You can find more information and links to videos and versions of the brochure in 17 different languages at Palliative Care Victoria. This information is not clinical advice. Your health care decisions are best made in consultation with your doctor.
