Using PCC4U VET Sector Toolkits
The PCC4U Toolkits have been developed to support the inclusion of palliative care within training packages preparing healthcare team members within the Vocational Education and Training sector.
The Toolkits can be accessed for free via the Palliative Care Education LMS (user registration is required). Educator resources for implementing each of the toolkits is available in our Educator Community Hub (Enrolled Nurse and Care Worker Toolkits) and within the toolkit resources (Cultural Safety Toolkit and First Nations Health Professionals Toolkit)
Each Toolkit focuses on developing knowledge and skills in palliative care and includes case studies, video vignettes and current evidence-based information. The online resources include learning opportunities to:
- Explore key practice concepts in palliative care
- Understand the experience of individuals affected by life-limiting illness
- Promote reflection and apply learning
- Consider experiences of practice in the field
- Develop an understanding of the roles of the multidisiplinary team
- Work effectively within a team
- Identify and review current evidence and information resources.
Key learning tools to achieve these outcomes, including a series of ‘thinking points’ and a separate video case study integrated throughout each module. The video case study provides an opportunity to meet an individual with a life-limiting illness at various points in their journey, reflect on the experience of individuals and apply concepts to practice.
Depending on desired learning outcomes, the modules can be used in whole or in part and delivered in a range of different formats including:
- Blended learning
- Workshop activities
- Interactive tutorials
- Self-directed learning
- Lecture presentations
- Group discussions
- Team-based learning.
