The Palliative Care Online Training Portal:

The Palliative Care Online Training portal is a free educational resource designed to support health professionals, family members and carers to deliver best practice palliative care in the community. The training provides users with the knowledge, skills and values to effectively communicate with and contribute to the care of people in the community who have a life limiting illness or who are approaching the final stages of the normal ageing process.
