PEPA Mentoring resources have been created to support healthcare workers/professionals who work in palliative care to mentor generalist healthcare workers/professionals in a way that supports the mentor to have knowledge, skill and confidence to share their knowledge about palliative care.

The Resources created are in four portals to support mentors individual learning styles. Online learning and a mentoring guide support independent learning.  Face to face workshops and a monthly online mentoring hub support mentor networking across Australia and collaborative mentoring learning.  A Best practice PEPA mentor is a mentor who is interested in growing their mentoring capacity and us all portals of learning as they develop themselves as mentors.

Scholarly literature on mentorship within health professions references the need for and benefits of mentorship [6, 7]. In general, mentoring relationships have been shown to contribute to increased productivity, job satisfaction, and a higher quality of care [5]. These advantages have been found to be shared by both mentor and mentee [8]. A successful mentoring relationship can evidently bring distinctive benefits for all parties involved: mentee, mentor, organisation, and patients.
