LGBTIQ+ Health Australia
Palliative and end of life care for LGBTIQ+ people comes with a lot of fear and anxiety attached to it. Individuals are putting off accessing health care due to discrimination they have been subjected to by health care professionals in the past.
The current research indicates that health practitioners are often uninformed when in comes to the needs of LGBTIQ communities.
The project, led by Hannah Morgan, explores the barriers preventing access to inclusive care and the factors facilitating safe, appropriate and timely palliative care in Australia and internationally. The aim is to support healthcare professionals to increase their knowledge and confidence in delivering inclusive care.
My approach to this brief was to put LGBTIQ+ community members are the forefront. I illustrated 12 diverse people that the brand speaks to.
Severe illness or end of life care is not an easy topic for discussion but it is an important one. My research into the subject was all coffins and prayer hands. I wanted the Palliative Care project to feel approachable and reflective of those the study aims to advocate for.
