Demand for primary care health professionals to provide general palliative care services as a result of
an ageing population is increasing. This free education webinar will cover palliative care and how
primary care health professionals can broach end of life conversations. In July 2021, the Voluntary
Assisted Dying laws (VAD) will be in effect.
This webinar will provide GPs with an overview of their potential roles, and how to access resources and further education.
• Summarise the advantages for patients of outlining their wishes for end of life care in advance
• Implement realistic conversations to facilitate a positive death experience
• Outline the possible roles for GPs in the practice of voluntary assisted dying
• Describe how to access the most recent and updated voluntary assisted dying resources available to primary health professionals
