University Teaching and Learning Resources

The Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates (PCC4U) project aims to promote and sustain the inclusion of the principles and practice of palliative care in all healthcare training.

It supports the inclusion of palliative care in undergraduate and entry-to-practice programs through the provision of a suite of evidence-based student and facilitator learning resources, and capacity building and professional development activities.

The following information is available to support educators in implementing PCC4U:

Core Modules

Four case-based learning modules to support the achievement of the graduate capabilities in palliative care:

Simulation scenario eLearning module

Teacher version includes instructions, videos and clinical documents required to deliver a palliative care simulated learning activity. Student version includes videos, clinical documents and activity questions.

Focus of learning:

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
