Formal Qualifications

A number of Australian universities and organisations offer postgraduate programs in palliative care.

When choosing a formal qualification, consider whether the learning outcomes for the course build or extend the specialist capabilities in palliative care. Depending on your discipline, there may be discipline specific specialist palliative care competencies which should underpin practice, education and training.
