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.
