Palliative Care Online Training
The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association has re-launched the Palliative Care Online Training Portal with two new training modules on pain management and recognising deteriorating patients.
All six online modules have been developed in accordance with best practice guidelines to help participants reflect on the needs of people and their families as they approach the end of life; build screening and assessment skills; develop confidence in having end-of-life conversations; invest in self-care and build resilience; extend knowledge of assessing, treating and managing pain; and develop skills in recognising and managing the deteriorating client.
The modules are accredited and will enable participants to accrue Continuing Professional Development points. Recognition of Prior Learning from relevant accredited training organisations is also available.
Since the launch in July 2015, the new training portal has built on the success of the original award-winning online training modules based on the Community Palliative Aged Care Guidelines for community based palliative aged care. More than 4,500 people have signed up since the relaunch with thousands more expected to complete the training in 2016.
The new online portal also offers a resource library to help participants further their knowledge on advance care planning and palliative care.
Registration is free and the modules can be completed with no time restrictions. The training is open to anyone with an interest, personal or professional, in palliative care.
