PEPA/IPEPA placements support health professionals to improve skills and develop confidence in caring for people affected by life-limiting illness.
  • We provide supervised observational placements (two to five days) within a specialist palliative care service host site
  • We also provide a Reverse Placement option where a palliative care specialist comes to your workplace to provide  customised learning for a small group.

PEPA/IPEPA Placements are not designed to develop you as a specialist palliative care provider, but rather to help you incorporate the principles of palliative care into your day-to-day practice.


Placements are available in all Australian states and territories for healthcare workers from a range of professions, roles, specialties, and contexts.

Specific placement information is available for each state and territory through contacting the PEPA Team: Register your interest in a PEPA placement now!

For more information about PEPA/IPEPA Placements – have a look at one of our Placement Guides.  These guides support individual learning as online modules (via our LMS) or print/PDF-writable booklets (via the learning guides page).
