Hospice New Zealand Fundamentals of Palliative Care 2019

This is a comprehensive multidisciplinary palliative care education resource comprised of ten learning packages. The flexibility of this resource means that it can be effectively utilised in all health care settings including general practice, hospital community and Aged Residential Care facilities. The topics covered include:

• Essence of palliative care
• Ethical issues in palliative care
• Pain and symptom management
• Palliative care for people with chronic illness
• Palliative care for people with dementia
• Communication skills
• Last days of life
• Loss and grief
• Caring for ourselves
• Spiritual care
-

It is strongly recommended that participants complete the Essence of Palliative Care first, as this sets the scene for the remaining sessions.
The above 10 packages have been grouped into three (3) integrated workshops that will be provided in Palmerston North, Horowhenua (Levin) and Tararua (Dannevirke). These workshops will run throughout 2019, as per the schedule below.
Please note that for each of the workshops you may be required to do some pre-reading. A post learning activity and feedback form will also need to be completed and returned to Arohanui Hospice.
Certificates will be provided on completion of the above requirements following each workshop. After completion of the three workshops, you will receive a HNZ Fundamentals of Palliative Care Certificate of Completion and a badge.
