PCC4U Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates

A key PCC4U activity is to support educators to embed education on caring for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with palliative care needs in entry-to-practice health programs. We do this by providing engaging learning, teaching and capacity building resources for educators. Last month the PCC4U team delivered a webinar focused on teaching culturally-responsive palliative care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The whole webinar is available for viewing on our YouTube channel.
