Palliative Care is everybody’s business. The Victorian End of Life and Palliative Care Framework articulates the responsibility of all health care providers to provide the palliative approach and to refer to specialist palliative care services when necessary. This can be difficult, because the palliative care system is complex and having the conversations about referral can be difficult for some patients.
Palliative Care Conversations Training
In-house training is available for health and community organisations in the region.
This 1.5 hour training session provides and overview of what palliative care is, how to refer to the right service and how to have the important conversation with the patient and family.
