Free Palliative Care Online Training (Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association)

Whether you work in aged care, acute or primary care, chances are you'll find yourself at some stage caring for someone with a terminal illness. Every person's needs are unique and sorting your way through the emotional and social stresses faced by a dying person and their family can be difficult.

A new online training program has been developed to help health professionals who provide palliative care to aged persons in the community. The modules will help you develop your skills and confidence, so that the next person you care for at the end of their life will benefit.

You can register online and begin your FREE Online Training NOW!

What does the training cover?

●Reflect on the needs of people and their families as they approach the end of life
●Build your screening and assessment skills
●Develop confidence in having end of life conversations, especially around Advance Care Planning
●Invest in your own self‑care and build resilience
●Connect you to a wider network of experts who can support and assist you
