Engage in our PCC4U Educator Community Webinar Series

The PCC4U Project Team recognises that quality implementation requires regular contact and support for educators across all contexts who are implementing PCC4U learning resources.

Our educator webinars support the development of the educator capabilities:

  • E1: Develop discipline-specific intended learning outcomes based on palliative care capabilities
  • E2: Use reputable learning and teaching resources to support learners’ development of palliative care capabilities
  • E3: Apply evidence-based learning and teaching strategies in palliative care education.

The PCC4U Project Team hosts interactive webinar sessions each month to provide opportunities for Educators who are implementing PCC4U learning resources, to network, share information, participate in a variety of learning and teaching strategies, and hear others talk about their implementation experience.

For further details and to register to attend the webinars, sign up to our Educator Community Hub (via the Learning Management System). In the Educator Community Hub you will also find recordings of previous webinars, along with supporting materials. Recordings of past webinar sessions are also available via our YouTube channel.

Interprofessional Learning Resources

These resources provide support for interprofessional learning through a case scenario format. The case scenario has been adapted from the original resource developed jointly by PCC4U and Health Fusion Team Challenge (HFTC).

Participation in this interprofessional learning activity will support the development of capabilities in palliative care as well as interprofessional learning.

Educator-specific resources to support the use of this case scenario are available in a separate module on the LMS. If you would like access to this, please contact pcc4u@qut.edu.au
