Reverse PEPA placements entail a specialist palliative care staff member travelling to the applicant’s place of employment to facilitate learning.
Reverse PEPA placements are negotiated with the PEPA Manager, and may be appropriate where the goal is to improve practice through tailored workplace-specific support. This may include in-service training for multiple staff members.
Reverse PEPA placements may be relevant within:
- Rural and remote settings;
- Private practice settings where general practitioner backfill of staff is limited;
- Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander community settings;
- Residential aged care settings.
