The Fundamentals of Palliative Care is a series of learning packages designed for any health care worker – registered and non-registered staff – who are caring for people with a palliative care need. There are four modules:
All health workers who are caring for people with palliative needs
30-60 minutes depending on the module. The modules are self-paced and at various points in the modules participants are encouraged to pause and think, or to take a break.

Upon registration, new users must receive a confirmation e-mail before they can access the course.
At the start of each module, a quick quiz is to be completed to acknowledge what the participant already knows about the topic(s).
Once the foundation module and the related questionnaire are completed, the other modules can be completed independently, with a certificate of completion available for each. Participants located in New Zealand can also undertake workshops following completion of online learning.
