End of Life Law for Clinicians (‘ELLC’) is a free national training program for clinicians and medical students and can also be completed by nurses and allied health professionals about the law at end of life. ELLC aims to improve participants’ knowledge and clinical practice, and enhance their capacity to manage legal issues in end of life care. The program has been developed by the Queensland University of Technology, and is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health.

About the ELLC Training Program 

 

End of Life Law for Clinicians (‘ELLC’) is a free national training program for clinicians and medical students and can also be completed by nurses and allied health professionals about the law at end of life. ELLC aims to improve participants’ knowledge and clinical practice, and enhance their capacity to manage legal issues in end of life care. The program has been developed by the Queensland University of Technology, and is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health. We attach an information sheet about the Project. 

 

Research shows clinicians have critical legal knowledge gaps, and a strong desire to know more about end of life law to better support dying patients and avoid legal risk. ELLC seeks to address these issues by delivering: 

  • 10 free online training Modules on end-of-life and palliative care law across all Australian States and Territories, and 
  • 22 case-study based workshops across Australia (in 2019 and early 2020). 

 

The training and workshops are designed for:  

  1. Medical specialists, trainee specialists, nurses and allied health professionals practising in palliative and end-of-life medicine. 
  2. Junior clinicians (interns, registrars) in the hospital setting. 
  3. Medical students.
