Overview

As Australians live longer and develop more complex health needs, ongoing integration of Palliative Care training within general practice is crucial. In most cases, patients living with chronic illness die expected, rather than sudden, deaths. This enables planning around their end -of-life wishes requiring proactive communication. This workshop aims to increase your skills in initiating discussions surrounding end of life care with your patients.

Join us for this case study and interactive learning workshop presented by Palliative Care specialists. 

A day dedicated to increasing capacity and skills in the area of palliative care.

Learning areas

  • Overview of palliative care services and resources
  • Future care planning and Advance Health Directives 
  • Palliative care pharmacology essentials
  • Practical tips for opioid prescribing in the community

Presented by
