Education and Training
Palliative care is an essential component of the education and training of all health professionals. There is also a need for specialised palliative care health professionals to provide care to people with complex needs who require palliative care and end of life care.
Palliative care education, training and professional development is available via a number of avenues in the Hume Region, Victoria and Australia.
The Community Palliative Care Services in the Hume Region participate in hosting clinical placements for health professionals undertaking the Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA). Enquiries are via PEPA clinical placements.
There are numerous on-line and other opportunities to improve your knowledge and skills in palliative care.
