CareSearch (www.caresearch.com.au) is an online resource providing free access to evidence-based information and resources about palliative care that are relevant across the life-course and across the system. The evidence-based content on the website is reviewed through internal and external processes for quality and relevance and reflects the multidisciplinary nature of palliative care practice. Just as trustworthy information can help patients, carers, and families understand what is happening and to make informed decisions, research evidence supports clinicians to provide the best possible care. CareSearch is managed by Flinders University and funded by the Government Department of Health.
