PEPA/IPEPA uses a range of video resources from ours and other palliative care education projects to support learning.
The IPEPA animation project is a series of videos drawing on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural strengths and perspectives to educate and entertain communities and health professionals in a grass-roots way.
Featuring the voice of multi-talented Sean Choolburra, the IPEPA animated series is five short films starring our hero, Sean. Stanley embarks on five journeys of understanding around palliative care and explores different aspects of what happens when we are diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
The full playlist is available on the IPEPA YouTube Channel. Individual videos cover the topics:
- What is palliative care?
- Understanding trajectories of serious illness
- Loss, grief and healing
- Pain management
Video Resources: Uncle Greg “Chatty” Chatfield
PEPA ACT with Clare Holland House was offered a generous opportunity from Uncle Greg “Chatty” Chatfield and his family to share in his story as he approached his finishing up. Greg was a Kamilaroi man who grew up on Ngunnawal Country. Greg and his family wanted the mob and the healthcare workforce to learn from his experience. From their generous storytelling, the following resources were approved by Greg’s family for future learning and education.
