Support for educators

The PCC4U project team provide support for educators in implementing PCC4U learning resources across a range of education contexts.

PCC4U Learning Resources:

  • Have been implemented in a range of undergraduate and entry-to-practice health professional courses
  • Can be used to support learning and teaching for students from any health profession
  • Support the development healthcare professionals who, within the scope of practice of their profession, can demonstrate the graduate capabilities in the context of caring for a person with a life-limiting illness.

Palliative Care Graduate Capabilities

The graduate capabilities are based on four core capabilities identified as being integral for health professionals to provide a palliative approach to care for people with a life-limiting illness:

  1. Effective communication in the context of an individual’s responses to loss and grief, existential challenges, uncertainty and changing goals of care
  2. Appreciation of and respect for the diverse human and clinical responses of each individual throughout their illness trajectory
  3. Understanding of principles for assessment and management of clinical and supportive care needs
  4. The capacity for reflection and self evaluation of one’s professional and personal experiences and their cumulative impact on the self and others.
