A number of Australian universities and organisations offer degree and postgraduate programs in palliative care in aged care.
When choosing a formal qualification, consider whether the learning outcomes for the course build or extend your specialist capabilities in palliative care. Depending on your discipline, there may be specific specialist palliative care competencies which should underpin practice, education and training.
