Oommen, Vinesh G., Yates, Patsy, & Taylor, Janet (2009) The Impact of Experiential Learning in Enhancing Palliative Care Knowledge and Skills among Nurses. In Oommen, Vinesh & Yates, Patsy (Eds.) The 4th International Conference on Community Health Nursing Research, 16-20 August 2009, South Australia.
Nurses working in community settings are increasingly required to care for people with chronic, life limiting conditions. Innovative educational programs are required to ensure nurses are equipped to deal with this challenging area of practice. The Program of Experience in the Palliative Approach (PEPA) started in 2003 as an initiative of the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing. The overall aim of PEPA is to improve the quality, availability and access to palliative care for people who are dying, and their families, by improving the skills and expertise of health practitioners, and enhancing collaboration between primary and specialist palliative care services. PEPA provides nurses with an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in the palliative approach to care through funded clinical workforce placements or workshops.
