AHHA Palliative Care Training

In 2013, we launched a free online palliative care training program, funded by the Australian Government, which was developed to improve access to best practice palliative care training and to improve the quality of life for people with a life-limiting illness, as well as for their families and careers. If you are interested in using this free online training program, members are asked to create individual accounts by visiting www.pallcaretraining.com.au and registering a new account.  Each participant will receive a certificate of completion upon conclusion. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries by emailing admin@ahha.asn.au or calling 02 6162 0780.

End of Life Law for Clinicians 

End of Life Law for Clinicians (‘ELLC’) is a free national training program for clinicians, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals about the law at end of life. ELLC aims to improve participants’ knowledge and clinical practice to 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 a Project Overview and flyer 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).
