Current healthcare models promote the equitable provision of palliative care to oncology patients with advancing disease, in the setting of their usual care, often in conjunction with anti-cancer therapies. This has resulted in specialist cancer services, as well as primary care across metropolitan, rural and remote communities, being called upon to integrate palliative care principles into their practice. To meet this increased demand for skilled health care professionals several national strategies have been initiated over the last five years. In this paper two projects are discussed in detail: the Palliative Care Curriculum for Undergraduates and the Program of Experience in the Professional Approach.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
