There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject aims to prepare students to be future-focused, and will equip students to respond to emerging opportunities and challenges. Students will be prepared to be transformative clinical leaders, who can drive the required changes through creativity and innovation. Students will reflect on factors impacting the future of palliative care such as population ageing, medical advances, and new and emerging technologies. As future leaders, they will explore new ways of working aimed at increasing access to person-centred, evidenced-based care. Students will analyse the impact current and future technology will have on decision making, treatment, care provision, referral and management. They will also examine new ways of working and organising interdisciplinary care at macro, meso and micro levels to ensure equitable, high-quality and safe palliative care across diverse populations and care settings.
