This subject supports students to understand how to optimise communication and collaboration to ensure inclusive person-centred palliative care. There is particular focus on delivering the best culturally competent care and psychological health and wellbeing for patients, their families and carers. This subject prioritises strategies that facilitate inclusion, engagement and empowerment of individuals, families, and carers from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and marginalised populations. Also prioritised is developing capacities to communicate the value of palliative care to other health professionals, patients, and families. Through enacting self-awareness, students will develop understanding and effective communication and interaction skills to facilitate optimal care.
