Nurses can earn CPD points with free online palliative care training  

Free palliative care online training is available for clinicians, carers and family members who want to build their knowledge and understanding in caring for someone with a life-limiting illness. 

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association’s training website recently received a significant update, now offering increased mobile functionality. 

The course has been endorsed by the Australian College of Nursing and users can claim up to 12 CPD hours. 

There are 6 training modules, as well as an extensive resource library. Two further modules are being developed and will be released soon. 

The modules cover the knowledge, skills and values that are required to communicate and contribute to the care of clients in the community who have a life-limiting illness and are approaching the final stages of the normal ageing process.  The COMPAC guidelines have recently been incorporated into the palliAGED online resource. 

The training is designed for the Australian health context, and is available to participants by simply creating an account and logging in.  

This package of online training is comprised of two groups of modules: 

  1. Modules 1–4 are based on the COMPAC best practice guidelines, known as ‘The Guidelines for a Palliative Approach for Aged Care in the Community Setting’. 
  1. Modules 5–6 are skills modules covering pain management and recognising deteriorating clients. 

Log in or register for the free training.
