Flinders University has launched six end-of-life education modules to assist doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in meeting the challenges of providing end-of-life care.

The six modules focus on developing clinical knowledge and skills in communication and decision-making and topics include:

  • Dying, a normal part of life
  • Patient-centred communication and shared decision making
  • Recognising the end-of-life
  • Team work and coordination of care
  • Planning end-of-life care
  • Responding to concerns

An Implementation Toolkit has also been released which brings together tools, resources, promotional materials and evidence that can encourage change/sustain new practices. Online materials are available under the ‘My Toolkit’ tab on the EOL Essentials website.

Based on the Commission’s National Consensus Statement: Essential elements for safe and high-quality end-of-life care, the project is funded by the Australian Government as a National Palliative Care Project.
