PEPA host sites are selected based on the level of resources available to them and their expected capabilities to provide an enriching and quality learning experience for participants. It is recommended that PEPA host sites are involved in a national palliative care quality improvement program i.e. National Standards Assessment Program and/or Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration. Some placements are spread over more than one host site.
