Hospice New Zealand Fundamentals of Palliative Care

This is a comprehensive multidisciplinary palliative care education resource comprising 10 learning packages.

The flexibility of this resource means that it is able to be used effectively in all healthcare 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 integrated workshops that will be provided in Palmerston North, Horowhenua (Levin) and Tararua (Dannevirke). These workshops will run throughout 2019, as per the outline 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. 

Download an informational poster. 

Certificates will be provided on completion of the above requirements following each workshop and, after completion of the three workshops, you will receive a HNZ Fundamentals of Palliative Care Certificate of Completion and badge.

Workshop 1:  Essence of Palliative Care, Ethical Issues and Communication Skills

Workshop 2: Pain and Symptom Management, Dementia and Chronic Illness
