Caring for older Australians at the end of life will require a workforce that is skilled and knowledgeable regardless of the care setting. There are many palliative care education, training and learning opportunities that can support people working in aged care and primary care. This section provides access to online learning opportunities, study towards formal qualifications and the National Palliative Care Program Learning.
A National Palliative Care Workforce Development Framework has been developed by the Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative, Queensland University of Technology. It provides guidance for individual health care providers, education providers, health service managers and policy makers to ensure all health care providers are equipped with capabilities relevant to their context to provide care for people who are dying.
