Brief description Given Australia's diverse ageing population, there is increasingly urgent need for culturally sensitive end-of-life care. Currently, end-of-life planning is promoted and standardised in the form of advance care directives, which have a lower uptake in culturally and linguistically diverse groups. The project aims to identify and theorise points of uptake and resistance to advance care planning in Australia's largest Asian populations. This new knowledge will be used to develop strategies for cross-cultural understanding in relation to end-of-life care preferences. The outcomes will have a strong bearing on how community attitudes, the experience of individuals, professional protocols, and ultimately, legislation evolve in Australia.
