The Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates (PCC4U) project aims to improve the skill and confidence of the health workforce to work with people with palliative care needs by promoting the integration of palliative care training within all health undergraduate, entry-to-practice, and relevant post-graduate curricula.
The PCC4U project is a national palliative care project funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
PCC4U has been working with key stakeholders to explore the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Workers and Practitioners in palliative care. The outcomes of engagement to date are outlined in the report summary Preparing our workforce to support families on a palliative care journey.
We continue to work with stakeholders to develop flexible and culturally-relevant learning and teaching resources for integration in VET Sector training packages. We aim to have a practical suite of resources available for implementation in 2022. The PCC4U team welcomes the opportunity and privilege to collaborate with, or receive feedback from, stakeholders, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workforce and community members to build on this learning journey.
