A first of its kind, health care professionals now have access to Palliative Care Education (PaCE), a QUT-led directory app that provides links to hundreds of free training resources.

The PaCE app links to almost 200 free educational resources developed through Australian Government-funded palliative care projects.

Distinguished Professor Patsy Yates from the QUT Centre for Health Transformation and QUT Centre for Palliative Care and Cancer Outcomes said there was a growing need for palliative care services in the Australian community.

“As the population ages, more people will die from diseases such as dementia or chronic conditions which typically have a prolonged trajectory,” said Professor Yates, who is also executive dean of the QUT Faculty of Health.

“Support to address these needs is required across all areas of our health and aged care systems, including community settings, aged care facilities, and in hospitals,” she said.

The PaCE resources are relevant to generalist or specialist health professionals and cover topics such as communication, symptom management, legal and ethical aspects of care, and decision-making and therapeutic partnerships at end of life.

The directory is accessible via mobile device or desktop, and can be filtered by discipline, learning approach and delivery mode, or searched for specific topics. Learning outcomes and duration, capabilities, and certifications are listed.
