Designed for health professionals looking to extend their palliative care capabilities to work at an advanced level, this interdisciplinary course equips students with the clinical performance capabilities and critical decision-making and leadership skills required to become a palliative care expert.
Developed and delivered in collaboration with leading contemporary experts in palliative care, each of the 12 subjects comprises a mix of theory, evidence-based and clinical practice. Subjects include a range of current healthcare contexts (including complex communication, social justice, law and ethics, public health, advanced pharmacology and physical assessment) so students can practise safely and proficiently to provide person-centred health care and contribute to quality outcomes for those in their care.
The course ensures graduates are practice-ready, able to work in dynamic and changeable health environments, and prepared to make significant contributions to improve patient outcomes.
With a curriculum heavily influenced by industry partners, the course is grounded in evidence-based, person-centred healthcare practice. It integrates theory and practice-based learning and assessment in a combination of online learning, classroom, state-of-the-art simulation laboratories and authentic clinical settings.
Students learn from expert academics as well as guest lecturers from industry in a range of teaching methods, such as participatory online and real-time learning activities, communities of practice, media resources, podcasts and case-based scenarios.
