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 packages have been grouped into three workshops that will be presented in Palmerston North, Horowhenua and Tararua. Pre-Reading is rquired for all sessions and a post learning activity and feedback form need to be returned to Arohanui Hospice to complete the course and receive certificates and Hospice NZ badge.

The topics covered include:

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

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

Workshop 3: Last Days of Life, Loss and Grief, Caring for Ourselves and Spiritual Care.

It is strongly recommended that participants complete the Essence of Palliative Care first, as this sets the scene for the remaining sessions.  These workshops will run throughout 2020, as per the outline below.

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.
