Case studies are used to relate theory and evidence to practical situations. The aim is to demonstrate the application of knowledge to everyday practice and decision-making.
The following collections of case studies focus on real-life experiences in providing and receiving palliative care. They are presented from the perspective of different health professional roles: nurses, allied health, pharmacists, and aged care workers. You can use them for individual learning or in the development of more structured courses in palliative care.
