Palliative Care eLearning

There are an increasing number of online teaching resources in palliative care. These vary in relation to:

  • their intended audience
  • the detail in which content is covered
  • whether they are accredited for use in continuing professional education
  • whether they require registration and/or a fee.

Some are fully developed educational programs with training and self-evaluation activities, some are compendia of teaching materials or PowerPoint slides on relevant topics, and a few are discussion starters.

Modules included on this list have been appraised for the quality of their content, and their relevance for palliative care. If there are other resources that should be included in this list, please contact the CareSearch Team and let us know!

The learning outcomes for the activity should build or extend the graduate or specialist capabilities depending on your learning needs.
