Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative

New funding arrangements for 2015-2017: The Australian Government Department of Health funds a range of national palliative care projects to enhance the quality of palliative care service delivery and increase support for people who are dying, their families and carers. The overall aim is to improve access to high quality palliative care for all Australians as they require it. The Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA) has received funding for the 2015-2017 period as part of the Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative. The other key partner in the Collaborative is the Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates project (PCC4U). As a national palliative care project, this Collaborative takes a strategic approach to education and training of the health workforce and delivers programs for priority health care provider groups across primary, secondary and tertiary settings.
