Medibank Palliative Care at Home Program

St Vincent's Private Hospital Brisbane and Medibank offer a home-based palliative care service - called the Medibank Palliative Care at Home Program.

About the program

The program provides eligible Medibank members living in metropolitan Brisbane with the choice to receive home-based treatment and palliative care.

You and your family will be supported by a team that may include doctors, nurses, social workers, counsellors and spiritual care practitioners who will work with you to take care of your physical, emotional and social needs.

Health care professionals from the palliative care service will assess your needs and work together with you, your family or carer and your GP or treating specialist to develop a personalised plan for your care. Along with planned visits from your care team, you will also have access to 24-hour phone support from registered palliative care nurses who can send clinical staff, including a doctor, and specialised equipment if needed.

Services provided to eligible Medibank members are based on an assessment of individual need and include nursing, medical, psychosocial support, respite, allied health, domestic assistance and equipment provision.
