EOLE provides free education modules on end of life care in acute hospitals, based on the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care Consensus Statements on End of Life Care in Acute Hospitals.
EOLE aims to provides e-learning opportunities and resources for doctors, nurses and allied health professionals to improve the quality and safety of end-of-life care in hospitals.
EOLE provides a range of resources including self-paced eLearning modules, toolkits, and training materials for educators.
EOLE essentials currently provides 17 education modules on the following topics:
The modules help to develop the skills to recognise end-of-life issues, to enhance communication strategies and to gain confidence in caring for these patients and their families.
The My Toolkits section provide downloadable action checklists and resources with links to videos, blogs, podcasts and further reading to support what has been learnt in the education modules and to help in applying this knowledge in practice.
End-of-Life Essentials have developed a suite of training resources that can be adapted and used in many teaching contexts covering the topics:
The EOLE Accreditation Collaborative partners with hospitals to share, develop and learn more about the delivery of end-of-life care in meeting the National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards. Accreditation resources including case stories and actions needed to meet the Standards are available.
