I attended a PEPA placement in October.
As an Aged Care educator, I was excited to learn from a new team/environment, and the placement exceeded my expectation. Over the two days of placement, I met various stakeholders, learned new policies and procedures, attended training and conducted home visits.
I used the learning/experience I had gained at PEPA to empower and mentor staff at Goodwin through education and training. Currently, I am working towards creating a PowerPoint presentation and session plan for new employees in palliative care. PEPA placement has definitely broaden my knowledge of palliative care and I will be utilising my learning towards my presentation.
