If you work in health or aged care, the Canberra-based Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association would like to invite you to take advantage of a new, free palliative care online training and information portal, launching today.
The portal provides a valuable resource for those involved in providing palliative care. It combines existing training modules, new resources, and specifically targeted learning content. The focus is skills development for improved quality of care, and it will be a source of genuine value to the palliative care workforce across the country.
The portal builds upon the success of the original award-winning training modules based on the COMPAC Guidelines for community based palliative aged care, which have already been used by over 21,000 people across Australia and internationally. In response to stakeholder feedback, two new units on pain management and recognising deteriorating clients have been developed in partnership with Silver Chain Training.
The launch of the portal and the free training it offers provides the opportunity for anyone interested in palliative care to increase their skills and knowledge and enable them to provide effective care at the end of life.
