92478 Introduction to Specialty Practice: Palliative Care is not offered in 2024
Palliative care is an approach to care that is grounded in person-centred assessment and care planning with a focus on living as well as possible with a life-limiting illness. It is essential that all nurses learn about this approach to care given that Australia has an ageing population and an increasing incidence of people living with chronic and complex illnesses. This subject supports students to understand the fundamental aspects of providing a palliative approach to care. There is particular focus on person-centred care, communication skills, symptom assessment and management, and providing collaborative care across health care settings. Students participate in industry-led masterclasses (four six-hour workshops) that utilise innovative teaching and learning activities to develop their ability to provide a palliative approach to care as well as focus on the principles of resilience and self-care to support their own health and wellbeing throughout their nursing career.
