The Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA)
PEPA Clinical placements
Participants undertake an observational placement of 2-5 days in a specialist palliative care inpatient, community or hospital based consultancy setting. Participants are supported to transfer learning into practice.
This activity is supported by three online learning modules aimed at preparing participants for clinical placement:
- For GPs & rural and remote medical practitioners
- For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healthcare professionals
- For nurses and allied health professionals
Access to the Online Learning Modules requires registration.
Target audience: All health professionals and care providers working in primary care or other non-specialist palliative care settings.
Reverse PEPA Placements
A specialist palliative care staff member travels to the residential aged care service or Aboriginal health service to facilitate palliative care learning.
Target audience: All health professionals and care providers working in primary care or other non-specialist palliative care settings where this model of learning is more appropriate.
