PEPA / IPEPA Learning Pathway

The PEPA / IPEPA learning pathway is aimed at assisting you to develop skills, knowledge and confidence in the palliative approach to care. We focus on active comfort care and a positive approach to managing symptoms and reducing distress. This approach facilitates early identification of individuals’ beliefs, needs and choices, and provides guidance for ways you can support them and their families, carers and community.

The PEPA learning pathway includes workshops, placements and learning guides:


About our Learning Management System (LMS) and our Learning Guides

PEPA/IPEPA has a range of learning materials that you can use to develop your Palliative Care knowledge. 

Learning Guides are one part of the PEPA learning pathway and can be used to support workshops and placement learning. They provide a guide to key information and links to detailed content and additional learning resources. They also provide opportunities for reflection and ongoing learning, which will assist you in developing knowledge skills and confidence for your day-to-day work.

PEPA Learning Guides are available as online modules (via our LMS) or print/PDF-writable booklets (via the learning guides page).

To access the online learning guides, you will need to register to use the LMS (free service).  Once you have registered with your personal login details you can click on the links to access the individual modules. You can return to them any time you like.  The modules automatically save your responses and keep track of your progress. 

When you have completed the online modules you will be able to download/print your own completion certificate which will be important for your Continuing Professional Development records.
