Palliative care makes a difference when it matters most.
Throughout their career, every health professional will care for people who are dying and will be required to draw on clinical skills to provide excellent palliative and end-of-life care.
End of life care is the responsibility of health professionals working across all areas of health services, including acute hospitals, community services, aged care, and palliative care.
Develop your clinical practice to become better prepared to provide care for a dying patient and their carers. Treat symptoms, manage daily tasks, provide rehabilitation, and offer support to help optimise the quality of life for people – young and old – who are living with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.
Build the knowledge and skills required to become a palliative care specialist, or undertake research or quality assurance projects focused on improving the delivery of palliative care.
