Communication Skills Education Videos for Health Professionals

Palliative and Supportive Care Education (PaSCE), at Cancer Council WA, are very excited to announce the launch of the new ‘Communication Skills Education Videos for Health Professionals’.

These case scenario based training resources were designed in response to the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic and an increasing demand for communication skills education. They have been produced in collaboration with clinicians practicing in acute care, community and aged care sectors. The videos provide opportunity for health professionals to observe different types of conversations held between clinicians and patients, family members and/or carers regarding Goals of Patient Care, Advance Care Planning and End-of-Life discussions.

Please note that this is a communication education resource, it is not a guide to clinical treatment and was not filmed in clinical settings.
