RN Samreen – VIC

The workplace activity I used involved an interactive learning session using a toolbox talk, PowerPoint show and educational videos from the ELDAC portal, discussing the difference between Advanced health care plans and directives. I also used copies of symptom management prompts that were developed during my clinical placement to assist in the learning, and also to identify palliative care phases and developing palliative care plans for the residents in the future. Participants were encouraged to watch the video “Recognise end of life”, and view the resources provided. The clinical team in my workplace are making efforts to improve the communication about palliative care with the residents and families. “Palliative care is everyone’s business” flyers feature in the RACF since my PEPA placement.
