Transition to Specialty Palliative Care

Gippsland Region Palliative Care Consortium (GRPCC) and Palliative Care South East (PCSE) have partnered with Australian College of Nursing (ACN) to develop and deliver the ‘Transition to Specialty Palliative Care’ course. The goal is to support participants to undertake formal recognised education and development in a supportive environment, to assist in leading to specialist qualification.

The course will have a mixed mode of delivery, and will include online learning facilitated by ACN, reflective practice activities, online assessments, and face to face workshops. The content covers symptom management, use of clinical practice guidelines including the physical and psychosocial impacts of life limiting illness on patients, carers and family. Strategies are explored to develop skills in appropriate evidence based care to enable the best possible quality of life for patients and their families.  

Applications have been extended and are now open for the 2022 intake and further.  Click on the link below to view the course outline and application form.  If you have any further questions please contact Kelly Rogerson at TSP@pcse.org.au or Anny Byrne on 5623 0684 or anny.byrne@wghg.com.au
