Ways to build your skills 

There are a number of ways you can become more knowledgeable about providing culturally responsive palliative care.

Workshops and placements

PEPA offers workshops and placements to health professionals who are interested in learning about the palliative approach. This includes tailored PEPA workshops on the palliative approach to care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander healthcare providers and communities, and a workshop for all health professionals on Culture-Centred Care of people with life-limiting illness from an Indigenous Australian perspective. The workshops are free of charge. PEPA also provides an opportunity for primary health care providers to develop knowledge and skills in the palliative approach by undertaking a supervised clinical placement for up to five days within a palliative care specialist service.

Options for further learning are detailed below.

IPEPA provides high-quality, holistic and culturally-responsive palliative care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their loved ones.
