Gwandalan National Palliative Care Project
Our Education and Training Team, in partnership with Palliative Care South Australia, has been co-developing a suite of tailored education and training materials to support cultural safety within palliative care services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The Gwandalan National Palliative Care Project consists of educational and training materials to support relationships between service providers, frontline staff and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. AGPAL has achieved this through the support of cross-cultural education and sharing of knowledge.
The primary project objectives aim to:
- Improve the quality of palliative care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by building capacity in frontline staff to deliver culturally safe, relevant, and responsive care.
- Promote access to and uptake of palliative care services by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through improved Community awareness and understanding of palliative care by building capacity in frontline staff to share knowledge around palliative care services.
- Support more choice during palliative care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through the sharing of knowledge by frontline staff to increase uptake of advanced care planning.
- Support the delivery of coordinated, culturally relevant and safe palliative care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Community and acute care settings.
We’re very excited to announce that the project’s eLearning platform, housing all information, updates, learning modules and other resources, is scheduled to launch in early June 2021.
