PaCE - the Palliative Care Education Directory App
A blog post written by Kylie Ash, National Project Manager PCC4U and Sharon Wetzig, Learning and Development Coordinator, Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative
The PaCE app provides the right resources, for the right people, with the right approach to develop the right palliative care capabilities. PaCE is a resource directory for educators and health and aged care providers in the form of a mobile-responsive web-based app. PaCE helps you find learning and teaching resources that support the development of specific palliative care capabilities for a variety of professions and practice contexts. The directory includes information about particular learning approaches and modes of delivery for each resource. The app is free to use, and all learning resources are free to access.
So why should you use the PaCE App?
- Comprehensive resources
The directory houses almost 200 resources which have been developed by the National Palliative Care Projects. The selected resources are high quality and well-developed. In one place you can see a resource, its learning outcomes, duration, certifications, capabilities, filters, and keyword tags. The resource is then one click away.
- Searchable content
Every resource has been reviewed and richly attributed with tags and keywords to improve the accuracy of your search result.
- Dynamic filter functions
You have the option to refine your search to resources only relevant to you using filters. You can select specific capabilities, a target health care provider audience, types of education or learning approach, and modes of delivery.
- Easy navigation
Navigation prompts support your search journey.
- Save and share search results
Registered users can save results for future reference and share resource links.
- Multimodal interface
Accessible on all devices including smartphones, tablets, and desktops.
The app has been developed and will be maintained by the Palliative Care Education and Training Collaborative at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). PaCE will support the activation of the whole-of-workforce framework developed to build the capability and capacity of the health workforce to provide quality palliative care to all Australians.
Development of the PaCE directory app has been achieved through collaboration with our National Palliative Care Project partners. We greatly appreciate the engagement and support of all our partners in the development process. A full list of project partners is available on the partner's page of the PaCE website. PaCE is funded by Australian Government Department of Health and delivered by QUT.
PaCE is being officially launched at the Oceanic Palliative Care Conference on September 8, 2021. It is live now and available for you to access via the website: https://pace.org.au/
To assist users in understanding how to use the PaCE app, we have developed a short instructional video which is available on the website. We hope you enjoy using this resource and find it a great support for your learning, teaching, and clinical practice.
