Researchers from the University of Sydney, Western Sydney University, HammondCare and Flinders University, in partnership with Unisson Disability and CareSearch have developed the "Talking End of Life…with people with intellectual disability" (TEL) toolkit, to support staff and carers to deliver end-of-life information to adults with intellectual disability, and discuss end-of-life planning in everyday contexts.

The TEL toolkit comprises 12 modules on topics including what death is, funeral wishes, and bequeathing. Each module contains individual stories, video examples, practical tips, resources, and links to available research that underpins the content.
